Hound Town


Hound Town is a three-acre park located in the heart of the Lippold Park Sport Complex. It is a place where dogs can socialize and run off leash-dogs love it! The park is entirely fenced and is open year-round, dawn to dusk.

Hound Town is available to rent for private functions! Contact Kurt Reckamp for more information. Note: A section will always be open for general dog park usage.
