Valparaiso Dog Park Plans Moving Forward For 2017

Valparaiso Dog Park Plans Moving Forward For 2017

VALPARAISO — Plans for a city dog park and horticultural center moved forward last week.

The park board approved a $41,015 contract with Troyer Group of Mishawaka for planning and design for the Valparaiso Dog Park and Horticultural Center. 

Park Director John Seibert  said the two facilities will be located on the 14-acre Clifford property on Campbell Road.

The horticultural center, now located on one acre on Harrison Boulevard, will have five acres at the new site. The new site will also be a satellite facility for the city's public works department.

The park department is partnering with Lakeshore Paws for the development and operation of the dog park, which will be on four acres and divided into areas for small dogs and large dogs.

The dog park is being funded half through park impact fees and half through private donors. The park will have a 30-car parking lot, but the city anticipates it will draw many dog walkers and others who use the adjacent Campbell Street pathway system. The new park will also have a restroom facility to serve park and trail users. The dog park should be open before the end of the year. #DreamLRG, #VALPARAISOINREALESTATE
