Moose Jaw’s Terresa Dykes said she would pretty much drive anywhere in the community to offer her dog Mouse the chance to run free. She said the family pet has certainly enjoyed off-leash dog parks when available in other cities.
“We used to take him to the one in Regina, and he absolutely loved it,” she told the Times-Herald, adding in her opinion such a park would be a huge asset locally.
During Monday’s executive committee meeting, administration offered councillors and the mayor three potential locations for a new off-leash dog park. As part of the 2012-16 capital budget, the city is investing $72,000 towards developing such an outdoor canine facility in the Friendly City.
The first site under consideration is east of Ninth Avenue Northwest and south of the Trans Canada Highway. The second site is south of the 1500 block of High Street West, on the west end of Hamilton Flats. The third site is the former Wild Animal Park.
