Runway Dog Park in Oak Creek will close indefinitely Nov. 1

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Runway Dog Exercise Area next to Milwaukee's Mitchell International Airport will close indefinitely on Nov. 1. 

Although the park is managed by Milwaukee County Parks, the land is on airport property. 

A recent review by the Federal Aviation Administration says all airport-owned land must be used for aviation purposes or the airport risks losing federal funding.

The county is working to allocate funds for a replacement park as part of the 2023 budget.
