 Proposed Dog Park Enhancements 
.....................................................

 
Thank you to everyone who participated in the Dog Park survey.  We received over 300 responses and discovered that nearly  50% of you visit the dog park weekly and almost 12% visit daily.  

You felt strongly about keeping separate small and large dog areas and you ranked the desired amenities as follows:

1    Natural shade (trees)
2    Drinking Water (seasonal and for dogs only)
3    Shade structures
4    Natural features (rocks, stumps, etc.)
5    Seating for humans and dogs
6    Agility/obstacle features
 
We truly appreciate all your comments and suggestions and will do our best to make enhancements to the dog park that will provide an enjoyable experience each time you visit.   Your comments and recommendation will be presented to City Council  soon.

 Dog Park Pros and Cons ..............................................................................
 
Link to more info

Pros:

  • They provide a safe environment for your dog to run and play freely.
  • They are the perfect venue for socializing your dog - a place where he can learn how to get along with other dogs of all breeds, sizes, ages, and temperaments.
  • They're a sure-fire way to absolutely exhaust an energetic dog.
  • They offer us the opportunity to socialize, make new friends, and get a bit of exercise ourselves.
  • They are a source for building strong communities. 
  • They're a place where you don't have to worry about offending non-dog-lovers.
Of course, there are some negatives too…

Cons:
  • If the park isn't fenced-off, there's a chance your dog could run-off and become lost or get hurt. These parks aren't recommended.
  • It can be a dangerous place at times: you may witness fights between dogs, or your dog may be preyed upon by more aggressive dogs.
  • Your dog can pick up bad habits like fear, aggression, rough play, and he may begin to ignore his commands.
  • Illnesses can be passed from dog to dog. If it's a concentrated area, or not well kept, it's also easier for the soil of the park to become contaminated.
