Public dog park dedicated at Fort Harrison State Park

INDIANAPOLIS — The first dog park in an Indiana state park was dedicated Oct. 23 in honor of DNR Law Enforcement K-9 teams who serve and protect Indiana's residents and natural resources.

The park opened Labor Day weekend with a grassy 1.3-acre play area called Herrin Hill. The dedication ceremony marked the opening of a second 3.5-acre play area called Platoon Run with a mix of grass and trees. In 2014, the final play area, Brigade Landing, is expected to open and offer 5 acres of woods for exploration.

It is unlikely that DNR will develop dog parks at other state parks, but the urban nature of Fort Harrison and the isolation of this piece of land from the rest of the park made it an ideal location.

Fort Harrison State Park Dog Park is in a gated area accessible only by driving to 8725 Fall Creek Road on the north side of the state park, north of Fall Creek. It is not reachable from the main park entrance.

To use the dog park, dog owners must purchase an annual pass and collar tag from the park office. Tags will cost $75 per dog. Tags for the remainder of 2013 will be prorated at $30 per dog.

Dog owners must provide copies of current vaccination records for rabies, parvo, distemper and bordatella and must complete and sign the dog park annual membership application, which is at stateparks.IN.gov/2982.htm.
