Lake Merritt Dog Park
Lakeview Dog Play Area, has been in planning for over 11 years. It’s gone through dozens of public meetings, and has been in the press many times. The proposed park is situated between Highway 580 and the Lakeview Library, at the corner of Lakeshore and MacArthur. It would transform a little-used park into a facility that serves hundreds of nearby residents daily – including many elderly and new families.

The city is proposing a portion of Snow Park at 19th and Harrison as a possible location for a new dog park. The dog area would be about half an acre, have an architectural fence and all the usual features. There will be a special meeting of the Parks and Recreation Advisory Commission (PRAC) to get public input on the site and show some very general plans about how the dog park could be included as part of a total revitalization and expansion plan for park. The plan looks good to the ODOG members who have seen it.
There will be a public hearing on the site:
Mon., Jan. 28th, 4:30-6:30 pm
Lakeside Garden Center ($2.00 parking fee)
