Preliminary plans for the dog park determine that about 1/4 of the park space would be fenced off for dogs to run off leash.
Some community members gave their feedback that this space would be too small for the numbers of dogs expected to show up in the area. Judge Williams indicated that NORDC may be open to designating a larger portion of the park for dogs — specifically, what is now the planter/ former wading pool which would possibly be good for use as a small dog area. This would relieve potential space issues in the larger dog area.
He also indicated that the Cabrini Dog Park is a project in progress — that he wants NORDC to finish this first stage soon (before summer 2016) and that if it’s determined that an abundance of dogs are using the park, the space can possibly be expanded in the future.
