Swift Run Dog Park is located at the northeast corner of the Swift Run landfill, at the corner of Platt Road and Ellsworth Road. View the
Ann Arbor Parks & Nature Areas Map for location context. View the
Ann Arbor Dog Parks page to learn more about the dog parks and permits.
An annual off-leash dog permit is required for access to off-leash areas at Swift Run Park. The 10-acre Swift Run Dog Park is maintained in partnership with Washtenaw County with financial contributions from both the city and county. See additional information at
Washtenaw County's page for Swift Run. The entire perimeter is fenced, with two gated entrances that permit a safe transition in and out of the dog park. There is a separate fenced area for dogs less than 20 pounds. Each dog play area has benches, waste stations, and plenty of room to run. There is an information board near the porta john, and an information stand by the entrance.
Swift Run Dog Park occasionally needs extra maintenance due to being built on top of a landfill. The City of Ann Arbor and Washtenaw County Parks and Recreation Commission are committed to providing a safe park that adheres to regulatory standards from the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ).
