Re: “A New Lake Merritt Dog Park?

When I heard that the Police Horse Stable was proposed as an alternative to Astro Park I ran past it with my dog. I couldn't believe it was true. It is an IDEAL place for a dog park. It is unused space with shade and access. Astro Park is a highly used and highly visible space (the only flat unprogrammed space within miles of the lake). Putting a dog park there would restrict use to only one type of community member (only those with small dogs). It is highly unlikely big dogs will use that space. Way to find an alternative that is a WIN-WIN for the Grand Lake community!

Re: “A New Lake Merritt Dog Park?

When I heard that the Police Horse Stable area was a possibility, I ran past it with my dog and I couldn't believe it could be true. This is an ideal spot for a dog park that takes an unused space that has shade, access and makes good use of it. Astro Park is taking a highly used, highly visible space, (the only flat unprogrammed space within miles of the lake) and restricting its use to one type of community member. Way to find a better alternative that is a WIN-WIN for Grand Lake area!

Re: “Dog Park Divides Lake Merritt

Could americanpaul please verify where you came up with this number of $25,000 to use Piedmont dog parks? I am researching this "fact" and having great difficulty coming up with the source.

Re: “Dog Park Divides Lake Merritt

As a dog-owner who lives 5 blocks from this location and someone who uses this green space to play volleyball regularly, I do not support a dog-run on this highly used, gateway to Grand Lake. There are 2 other fenced dog parks within a mile (Grove Shaftner and Mosswood) that are fully functional and underutilized. We have little unprogrammed green space left in Oakland. Let's hold on to it for all Oaklanders, not just dog-owners. This is a community gem.
