Columbia Goes to the Dogs

It’s been a long time coming but it appears that, by this time next year, Columbia will have its very first dog park. According to this story by Luke Lavoie in Explore Howard, “CA staff has recommended that a dog park be built off Rivendell Lane near the CA Sports Park.”

Construction is expected to begin next February and will likely be ready for HoCo canines by early spring.

It could soon be followed by a second Columbia dog park. The HoCo Department of Parks and Recreation is working on plans to bring a dog park to the new Blandair Park in Columbia by spring of 2014.

“The county has identified two sections of Blandair park, one in the southwest and one in the northwest, as potential locations for a dog park.”

Parks and Rec currently operates the only existing HoCo dog park in Ellicott City.

A big wag of the wordbones tail goes out to all those who work to make HoCo even more dog friendly.
