Dog Park in Urbana Community
Attention Urbana Dog Owners!
Wouldn't it be nice if there was a Dog Park in Urbana that you could walk to and get to know your neighbor's and their furry friends? I have been in contact with Bob Hicks, the Deputy Director of Frederick County Parks and Recreation regarding the feasability of building a Dog Park in one of Urbana's Parks. Below is a transcript from our communication:
"Thank you for your email and interest in a dog park in the Urbana area. Please know that there is not a dog park indicated in either the Urbana Community Park or Urbana District Park Master Plans. However, that does not mean that a dog park couldn’t be considered in the future.
The Division of Parks and Recreation has received some emails from citizens that has expressed interest in a dog park at Urbana District Park. If you know of other individuals who are interested, please feel free to past along my information and have them contact me directly and I will keep a record of the level of interest in such a facility. If there is enough demonstrated interest, a dog park would be considered in the future, based on available funding and gaining appropriate approvals."
Please keep in mind this request is not without precedence...The Dog Park in Ballenger Creek was built a few years ago precisely because residents requested it!
If you agree and would like a Dog Park in one of Urbana's Parks please reach out to Bob and sign the petition to express your support!
