Help Create Equitable Access for Dogs in Oakland Parks
“We’ve seen how these (dog) parks make a community great for people AND pets… It makes an area more attractive for visitors and new residents… The best moments of your life are measured in dog years.”
We missed the deadline for Bark for your Park this year (congratulations to Huntington, WV on winning this year!) But you can still help us in our mission to make space in our parks for our dogs. Currently, it’s illegal to bring a dog to any of the parkland near Lake Merritt (even on leash). We’ve been working for over ten years on the project at Lakeview Park. It would take up only one tenth of one percent of the parkland near the lake. It’s been approved by city agencies several times, and is included in the Lake Merritt Master Plan. But, we need your support.
