Why a Dog Park?

Why a dog park you ask? We'll tell you why...

  • Dog parks contribute to the overall well-being and attractiveness of our community.

  • Northern Ward 4 has a large  number of dogs and dog owners.

  • Dog parks can boost the nearby/local economy when visitors come to the area to use the dog park. 

  • A DC dog park will increase the number of registered DC dogs in the area (thereby resulting in increased security and DC revenue).

  • Dog owners/walkers contribute to the safety of the neighborhood by acting as the eyes and ears of the community.

  • Some Ward 4 residents are up to 3 miles away from the closest fenced-in DC dog park.
