Park History

 

After a four year public/private collaboration, the Flathead Valley has its first off-leash dog park, and it is a major success. The dream was realized on June 20th, 2009, when the bullpen gates officially opened at Hugh Rogers Wag Park located in the Armory Park complex in Whitefish. The five acre park features fully accessible paths, benches, a drinking fountain for dogs and people, a message center, and lots of open space for play. And it's going to get even better.

The non-profit Whitefish Animal Group known as WAG led an effort to locate the best available space, create a safe and user-friendly design, raise all necessary funds, and work through public processes and City requirements to make the park a reality for our community and visitors. The Whitefish Parks and Recreation Department worked enthusiastically with WAG every step of the way. The Park Board and Whitefish City Council were involved throughout the project and gave their approval to this major component of the greater Armory Park Master Plan.

The park is free to the public, and welcomes all responsible users. It is owned and maintained by the City of Whitefish, with WAG acting in an advisory capacity. WAG will continue to raise funds and provide leadership for future improvements. All donations through WAG are tax-deductible.

Recent improvements to the park thanks to the communities generous donations have been: a community pavilion, additional paved pathways, the addition of an agility course, a small dog area and trees.

Future planned improvements include the addition of a pond and dog beach. We would also like to add additional seating throughout the park and more trees.

The City of Whitefish and WAG welcome you to Hugh Rogers Wag Park, named in the honor of the beloved Whitefish veterinarian who died in a plane crash in April 2009.
