PetSmart Unleashes Its One-of-a-Kind Pop-Up Park (P.U.P.) In Downtown Detroit

Stocks in this article: PETM

PetSmart, Inc. has partnered with the City of Detroit and the non-profit community organization Detroit Dog Park to bring a portable, pop-up dog park to a vacant lot in Detroit. This is the first official dog park in Detroit, providing more than 10,000 square feet of space for pet parents to bring their pets to play. The new park is called the PetSmart P.U.P.’s Detroit Dog Park, and is located at the former Macomb Playlot at 2301 17 th Street at Rose Street in Detroit, Mich. The park is near the Michigan Central Station in the city’s historic Corktown neighborhood.

PetSmart’s P.U.P. is a shipping container that contains everything that can be deployed to create an interim dog park, including 340 feet of fencing, three Oops clean-up Stations, three moveable backless benches, lighting on and inside the container (powered by a solar panel on the roof of the container) and a storage closet. The shipping container serves as the park’s point of entry and exit. PetSmart provided all of the equipment required to set up the park, and Detroit Dog Park will maintain the park.

“At PetSmart, we believe in enriching people’s lives through the power of pets, and this is centered on giving back to the communities where we all live and work,” said David Lenhardt, president and CEO, PetSmart. “The PetSmart P.U.P. will provide the pet parents of downtown Detroit with a much-needed place to let their pets run and play while improving the community by repurposing vacant land.”

“Detroit Dog Park is thrilled to partner with PetSmart and the city of Detroit to build the city’s first official dog park,” said Mary Lorene Carter, President of Detroit Dog Park. “With so much vacant land in the city, we are pleased to put Macomb Playlot back to use as a park for dogs and their people. Providing Detroiters with a place to socialize and exercise their dogs is part of our mission, and we thank PetSmart’s P.U.P. program for helping us realize that goal.”
