The Brutus Dog Park opened September 2012. It's located within River Street Park. The grassroots group "Friends of the Brutus Dog Park" fundraised over $29,000 and rallied the community together. Their efforts have generated a better community showing that all our members (four legged ones too) are essential in creating a quality place to live. For more information on the "Friends of the Brutus Dog Park." Please find them on Facebook to share photos and experiences with those that truly love their dogs and the Big Rapids Brutus Dog Park.
