New Dog Park Possibility

Screen shot 2013-01-22 at 8.30.05 AMThe city is proposing a portion of Snow Park at 19th and Harrison as a possible location for a new dog park. The dog area would be about half an acre, have an architectural fence and all the usual features. There will be a special meeting of the Parks and Recreation Advisory Commission (PRAC) to get public input on the site and show some very general plans about how the dog park could be included as part of a total revitalization and expansion plan for park. The plan looks good to the ODOG members who have seen it.

There will be a public hearing on the site:
Mon., Jan. 28th, 4:30-6:30 pm
Lakeside Garden Center ($2.00 parking fee)
666 Bellevue
