The dog run under I-95 may be taking steps in the right direction, but the other proposed Pennsport dog space may have reached the end of its course.
We’ve been following the plans for this dog-specific space for Dickinson Square from the survey that was initially released, to a public meeting that brought out the vocal non-supporters in May. Park and Recreation has now decided that Dickinson Square Park is “not the best viable option for a dog run.”
The letter posted by the Dickinson Square dog run group on Facebook:
Although Parks and Recreation, along with Councilman Squilla, have decided that this dog run is not a good fit for the park, they are still “committed to support an effort to explore the potential of a dog run in this area.” At the meeting in May, other members of the community agreed that while Dickinson Square may not be the perfect place for a dog-specific space, they would still like to see something like this in the neighborhood.
