The board of commissioners of Cultural and Recreational Affairs in conjunction with the Department of Recreation and Parks is inquiring about residents possible interest in utilizing a dog park in an area adjacent to the community garden at the Saint Paul’s Recreation Complex. Although 30 percent of respondents to the recreation and parks needs assessment listed dog park as an area of importance, prior to any funds being allocated for necessary fencing, benches and other amenities, the parks department would like to hear directly from resident dog owners that if built they would use such a facility. If this initiative proceeds there will be established rules regulations, hours of operation, permit application fee and a waiver of liability required. Residents can express their interest by visiting the recreation and parks office at 108 Rockaway Ave. or call the office at 516-465-4075 by Oct, 31. You will be asked to leave your name address and phone number when you call.
