Parks Dept: Second Duluth Dog Park Plan to City Council by End of Summer

The Duluth Parks and Recreation Department says a final proposal for a second off-leash dog park could be presented to the City Council before the end of the summer.

The Keene Creek Dog Park, located on 62nd Avenue West, is currently the only space where it is legal to unleash a dog in Duluth. Dog owners in others parts of the city have been pushing for more options in central and east Duluth.

A proposal on the table is to make Observation Park one of those options. The plan calls for fencing off a portion of park adjacent to the existing gym used by Jungle Boy Boxing.

On Tuesday, city officials were presenting their plan and hashing out some of the specifics at a public meeting. 

"This is our first public meeting with neighbors and interested people to discuss more of the details about where in the park the dog area would go, what it wold look like, and some of the details about it," said Kathy Bergen, manager of the Parks and Recreation Department. 

Last November, the Duluth City Council passed a resolution recommending Observation Park as a possible site for a new dog park. Bergen says they hope to get approval from the Parks Commission and bring a final proposal before City Council again by the end of summer.
