Proposed Dog Park

MaizeyOne thing is certain about residents of Boulder City: we love our pets!, a consumer advocacy organization, ranked Boulder City 39th out of the 567 cities it studied for available dog-friendly activities and 60th overall in 2019. Letting dogs run and play is important for the health of the pet and the owner.  Animal Control and Police regularly report injuries to humans and even deadly attacks between dogs off-leash.

The goal of City Council and Staff is to satisfy the need for pets to get exercise – safely - without disrupting ongoing activities and understanding limitations due to the historic drought. The City is in the process of implementing a turf removal program to cut down on irrigation; planting new grass is not a sustainable option.  Council has approved more than $70,000 in funding from the American Rescue Act Plan to be used towards the park, but the big question is where should the park be located. Proposed Dog Park site 2

The City is currently considering a .81 acre parcel of grass at Veterans Memorial Park (see photo above).  While the area would need to be fenced in, it already has grass and is not being utilized by any groups at this time. "The City received input from the community on this project,” said Taylour Tedder, City Manager. “We hope to make some announcements about next steps in 2023."
