Policies and Ordinances Involving Dogs

Due to a rising number of complaints of dogs at Presque Isle Park and public bathing beaches, the City of Marquette reminds community members and visitors of the City’s rules for dogs.

  • Presque Isle Park is considered a nature preserve. Dogs are only permitted in the park when in an enclosed vehicle. This ordinance is to protect park visitors from unwanted dog interactions, protect wildlife and prevent feces in the park.
  • Dogs are also not allowed at bathing beaches, the Fit Strip, Park Cemetery, or at special events where “no dogs” signs are posted.
  • City Code also stipulates that people must keep dogs leashed at all times – unless in the City’s off-leash area – and that owners must remove and dispose of all dog waste immediately.

Failure to adhere to any of these rules can lead to the issuance of a municipal civil infraction and an associated fee.

Additionally, the City requests residents avoid taking dogs onto the City’s baseball and soccer fields. Exceptions are made for leader, guide, hearing, and service animals in accordance with the ADA.

The City of Marquette appreciates responsible dog owners and encourages community assistance in following the rules and keeping our City clean. Violations witnessed by the public can be reported to the Police Department at 906-228-0400.
