Jack's 5 Acre Unfenced Private Dog Park In Grand Rapids

Welcome to my home on Leffingwell Ave NE! -My yard is about a half an acre and it is UNFENCED. -There is a pool, but that area is FENCED off and off limits. -There are hundreds of acres of public land with miles of walking trails located directly behind my property. Simply walk towards the back of the property and cross the wooden bridge going over the creek. *This is all public land and it is accessible by anyone. However, the only people that use it are the 10 houses whose property butts up against to the land. I have never encountered anyone walking back there, but I wouldn’t be surprised if there are another person or two who take their morning walks back there! The land does butt up to the highway, HOWEVER it is all fenced off and there is NO WAY to gain access to the highway without jumping a fence.* I just got a new driveway and it is big enough to park a few cars all while not blocking the garage and STILL having enough room to turn around properly. The whole property from the road to public land is under camera surveillance as well. All the pictures are from the winter. In the summer time, the greenery is very fully and you cannot see any of the neighbors. On the south side of the property there is a creek and lots of woods dividing my property and the neighbors. On the north side there is about 20 yard of woods separating my property from the neighbors. RULES: -Please clean up all poop and dispose of it in the waste container located behind the shed. -please don’t open either of the gates to the pool. It is off limits. -please park on the RIGHT side of the driveway as you’re pulling in. (As to not block the garage) -The land behind my house is all public and is accessible by anyone. However, it is very seldomly used. If it is used, it’s majority of the time one of the 10 houses whose property butts up to the public land. There are lots of easy trails, harder trails, valleys, creeks, etc. In total there are 4 or 5 miles of cleared trails back there and it is VERY HARD to get lost. -When on the public land, please do not trespass on anybody else’s property. All the property lines are posted and very hard to miss! Please see photos for parking and a map on how to get to the backyard as well as all the trails.

What people say about small dog parks around Grand Rapids, Michigan

Our dog had a great time chasing a ball and rolling, sliding, etc. The kiddie pool was a nice doggy amenity. Our dog is large and the yard felt secure. The hostess was very friendly. We will be going back again soon ☺️

This was our first time ever using Sniffspot and we LOVED it! Joel made sure to ask if we had any special requests or concerns (we did not). We spent an hour there and my dog LOVED it. If you have a reactive dog that’s NOT good with other dogs — please note that the neighbors on the left side of the property have a dog (cocker spaniel) and so do the ones to the back of the property (golden doodle). They are both VERY friendly dogs and my dog got along with them (with a fence between them) just fine! At the very back of the property there is some damage to one of the fence links, so if you have a large dog or one that’s the new Houdini then keep an eye out over by that area! There was fresh drinking water for my doggo and a few toys he could play with! However, he seemed much more interested in the new smells, new dogs, and peeing on everything he possibly could! Would highly recommend and we definitely be coming back! 😊

Jasper enjoyed the nice yard. It had shady and sunny spots, as well as a nice deck. Even with the swing set, there was plenty of room. The hostess Jenna was very nice.
