Mac Arthur Dog Run

The Mac Arthur Dog Run (also known as the Waukesha Dog Run) is located 2 miles north of our community in the Woodridge Grove neighborhood. An easy five-minute drive on US-18/Les Paul Parkway brings you to a place of “social interaction, pure relaxation, and immense amounts of fun.”
The Waukesha Freeman Sponsor and Operation SPOT support the park by providing visitors with a hiking trail, picnic area, trees, and shaded areas. Please read the City Ordinances and Dog Run Rules in the PDF.

Mitchell Park Dog Exercise Areas

Mitchell Park is 450 acres filled with wetlands, an archery range, and an arts center. In addition, the park is home to Elmbrook Little League, and across the street from Fox Brook Park, a local quarry turned swimming hole with a paved trail.
Mitchell Park Dog Area has a fun path through the woods and offers small and large dog areas. Please be advised some areas are not fenced in, so dogs with poor recall skills are recommended to be watched closely.
