The Carbondale Community Dog park is adjacent to the Life Community Center. It is owned and operated by the Carbondale Park District. The construction of this park was made possible by the generous support from the residents and businesses of Carbondale and surrounding areas. The fundraising and construction were facilitated by Friends of Carbondale Dog Parks (FCDP).

We were awarded a $25,000 grant from PetSafe in September! We are truly grateful and overwhelmed by the amazing support from the Carbondale community during the month of August! Your voting helped us win this grant. It enabled us to move forward with the installation of fencing and gates already purchased with donations from the community.
