Hound Town

Hound Town is a three-acre park located in the heart of the Lippold Park Sport Complex. It is a place where dogs can socialize and run off leash-dogs love it! The park is entirely fenced and is open year-round, dawn to dusk.

Hound Town is available to rent for private functions! Contact Kurt Reckamp for more information. Note: A section will always be open for general dog park usage.

Gate Keys

Due to an issue with the key card system, all Hound Town renewals and new Hound Town purchases will receive a key for entry to Hound Town. Crystal Lake Park District residents and non-residents may purchase a key at the Administration Office.
