  1. The park looks great! Can’t wait to enjoy…

    I can’t help but make one annoying comment about this rendering and the research they conducted–walking your dog on a leash in a dog run is a big no-no! Just sayin…

  2. Please, please, please get this dog run built as soon as possible. especially since the Warren St. Dog run is going into private membership mode – too expensive for many of us.

  3. @Bec: It is? I don’t go there because my dog hates dog runs, so I’m out of the loop. Can someone send me the details?
