The Monroe Dog Park is a 2.6-acre fenced area in the north business district, 120 N 29th Ave, where dogs are allowed to play off leash. The dog park is divided into two sections: a two-acre large dog area for dogs over 30 pounds and a one-half acre small dog area that is reserved for dogs smaller than 30 pounds. The Monroe Dog Park is open to registered members only.
STEP ONE TO GETTING YOUR MONROE DOG PARK LICENSE IS YOU NEED TO HAVE A DOG LICENSE
