Monett Dog Park (Coming Soon)

Monett Main Street is making use of the Kelley Creek flood plain in unique and exciting ways. Through a FEMA grant, flood damaged buildings were purchased. At the site of an old garment factory, between Front and Main Street, Monett residents and their four legged friends are getting a new park. The park will be about the size of a football field. The plan is to separate the park into two spaces, one for big dogs and one for small dogs. Monett’s first Dog Park Coming Soon!
