Erosion & sediment control devices & tree protection have been installed to prepare for ground-breaking following an initial inspection by Prince George’s County.

For some time, many of you have expressed interest in the creation of an open-access dog park. Mayor & Council approved a Design & Engineering contract in November 2018 to develop construction plans, bid specifications, and obtain required permits for the project on the Prince George’s County Board of Education parcel located in the 9300 block of 51st Avenue, just north of the Public Works property.

It is no surprise that dogs make a difference in the lives of individuals. It has been stated that dogs have been linked to reduced occurrences of psychological conditions, including depression, stress, and grief. Dogs are seen as companions and even best friends for some; therefore dog parks are important outlets for humans, as they provide recreational opportunities and bring together dog lovers of all ages and socioeconomic status.

In recent years, there has been an accumulation of evidence that associates dogs with physical, mental, and social dimensions of human health. Dog parks may provide a safe place for older people or people with disabilities who may not be able to walk their dogs. Dog parks provide areas where dogs can exercise and run freely while their owners can socialize. In addition, spending time with their dogs at the dog park reinforces the dog-owner bond, when planning to visit with your furry friend, you might also want to read this article about the liability of dog owners so you can be extra careful.
