The KVPD's 2 acre dog park provides our canine companions 
a safe area to exercise and play off-leash. Additionally it gives dog lovers an opportunity to socialize while their dogs interact.

The park includes a divided fenced in area for small and large dogs, parking close to the site, shade trees, and trash cans. 

Dog Park is located at River Road Park, turn at the River Road Softball Complex and follow along to the River. Dog Park is on the left.

Dog Park Permits

For the safety of park users and their dogs, an annual permit is needed for those wishing to use the park. Dog park permits can be purchased in person at The Bird Park Administration Office or by mailing an application form with payment to Kankakee Valley Park District. Applicants may register up to three dogs. Permits are valid from the date of issue until that calendar date the following year.

Permit Prices

  • $35.00 First Dog
  • $20.00 Second Dog
  • $15.00 Third Dog
Limit 3 dogs per person

Dog Park Usage

Once a dog park permit is purchased, visitors can use the dog park year-round during park hours. The dog park may periodically be closed for restoration, mowing, maintenance, or due to weather conditions.
