Rockwall and the Lake Ray Hubbard community is about to have it's 1st ever DOG PARK! Yes my friends, our 4-legged friends will have their own place where they can run around leash free & play with other dogs!
Rockwall City Council unanimously voted to support the proposal by this year's Leadership Rockwall class. The project is underway as we speak at Harry Myers Park. Since the land is already owned & operated by the City of Rockwall Park & Recreation Department, and is being built with private donations of money, labor, & materials, this project hasn't cost the Rockwall Community anything. Not to mention, after the Leadership Rockwall class graduate this May, Rockwall PAWS will watch over the Dog Park and according to Brad Griggs, the Parks Director, he told the Council that the upkeep & maintenance of the dog park would be no additional burden to his staff.
The Rockwall Area Dog Park is slated to have its Grand Opening May 1, 2011 and will be on 1.3 acres that is completely fenced in and will have divided areas with plenty of shade & water stations for both the big doggies and the small doggies. There'll also be sitting areas, waste pick-up receptacles all along the Dog Park, & plenty of parking.
Kudos to this year's Leadership Rockwall class & to the Rockwall City Council for blessing Rockwall and it's Lake Ray Hubbard neighbors with its' 1st DOG PARK! To find out more or how you can donate, visit their website http://rockwalldogpark.org/ and friend them on Facebook.
