Michigan’s very first indoor dog park, bar, and restaurant is located just outside the city in Comstock Park. For the inevitable not-so-sunny days, The Pack offers a climate controlled environment for dogs to run around and socialize with playgroups. When they’re all tired out, they can join their owners for a bite to eat. Options include from breakfast sandwiches, fries, and pizza, some of which cater to gluten free and vegan guests too. They first opened in January 2021. New members can register their pet online here.
The Grand Rapids area has so many outdoor dog-friendly trails, we couldn’t choose just one! On the north side of the city is Fred Meijer White Pine Trail, which passes through popular spots like downtown Rockford and Custard by the Dam, and stretches nearly 93 miles up to Cadillac. On the east side of town however, Reeds Lake Trail offers just over 4 miles of trails around the idyllic Reeds Lake.
With so many options in the area, you’ll never run out of new places to explore with your four-legged adventure buddy. Whether your idea of adventure is winding through the trails, socializing with other dogs, or supporting a puppy-positive coffee shop, Grand Rapids’ offerings won’t disappoint.
