Canton Dog Park

On Friday, May 20, Canton's new dog park opened at Preservation Park in Cherry Hill Village. The park provides a safe off-leash environment for dogs and their owners.

Dogs must be licensed and vaccinated, and entrance to the park is $25 annually for Canton residents or $50 per year for non-residents. There are separate sections of the park for small and large dogs.

A grand opening celebration is planned for later in the Summer. Find out even more about the park at the Canton Patch.

Canton Township prides itself on providing an excellent system of parks which offer a variety of activities for residents, plus a place for families to gather for picnics and other outdoor activities:

Park and Read Passes

Since we have distributed our limit for passes this year, the 2012 Park and Read program at CPL is over.


The Michigan DNR Park and Read program allows library cardholders the ability to check out a one-day pass into any Michigan state park or recreation area in lieu of the $6 resident daily motor vehicle entrance permit. Many parks will also have a hammock available at no charge for Park and Read participants to borrow while on-site for the day so they can fully enjoy a great book in Michigan's great outdoors.

Park and Read passes are available for one week at a time and cannot be renewed.

Relay for Life & Construction Affect Library Traffic

Canton's annual Relay for Life begins 10:00AM Saturday, May 15 at Heritage Park and runs through Sunday, May 16. This event raises funds to fight cancer and awareness of cancer prevention and always draws a big crowd. Traffic will be heavy and parking at the library and in township lots will be tight. Please adhere to posted parking signs and park only in public parking areas, leaving our employee parking area available for library staff.
