Municipal Dog License Required

Dogs visiting Sunnyside Park must have a current Dog License for the municipality in which you reside – there are no additional fees to use the park once your pet is licensed.  If you haven’t already applied for or received a 2018 license for your dog, you may get one through Fitchburg City Hall for $15 (plus $5 late fee for applications after April 1) per neutered/spayed pet.

About FDPA

Fitchburg Dog Park Advocates (FDPA) is not-for-profit advocacy group of motivated residents working with the City of Fitchburg to establish the first off-leash dog park in Fitchburg, Wisconsin.

Thanks to the many local supporters of the Fitchburg Dog Park, FDPA has reached its  first fundraising goal of $50,000 allocated to basic park amenities and construction to match City funding. FDPA wants to make the park the best it can be, so we’re raising our goal to $60,000. Join us in reaching this new goal!


  • To establish the first fenced-in, off-leash dog park in central Fitchburg where well-behaved canine citizens can exercise in a clean, safe environment without endangering or annoying people, property or wildlife.
  • To develop a beautiful, well-maintained space open to all dog lovers and friends who are willing to uphold the dog park rules and regulations.
  • To view this park as a community project, in partnership with the City of Fitchburg, designed to satisfy the needs of dog owners and non-dog owners alike.
  • To raise funding to match the City of Fitchburg’s monetary commitment.
