Tipps Canine Hollow opened in 2006 and was named in honor of Don and Doris Tipps, retired educators and community volunteers. The off-leash dog park includes a 2-acre fenced-in area for large dogs and a 1-acre fenced-in area for small dogs. There are plenty of shady spaces and benches throughout the park, along with water fountains and plastic bag stations for picking up after your pet. A whimsical bronze sculpture of a dog and three children sits at the entrance to the park and evokes memories of simple childhood pleasures. “Kids in a Tree,” by G. Pat Foley  originally stood at North Hills Mall and was donated to the city.
