Hillcrest Dog Park is located beside Fuller Park, in the Fulton Heights neighborhood, on the northeast corner of Fuller Ave. NE and Lyon St. NE. Citizens raised funds to create the dog park, and it opened in 2005. It was the only dog park in the city of Grand Rapids until 2013, when Covell Dog Park opened.
The park is free for use, and includes a fenced area for small dogs, and a fenced area for larger dogs. The park is well shaded and has picnic tables, water for dogs, and wood chip ground cover to prevent muddy areas.
