Meeting Set to Discuss a Dog Recreation Park

dog picA meeting is scheduled for Saturday, April 19 to see what the interest is in creating a dog recreation park in Knox.

Those spearheading the idea ask that all dog owners/lovers attend the 10 a.m. meeting at the Henry F. Schricker Public Library in Knox to learn about information needed to get a dog park approved in the city limits.

Chuck Richardson previously told WKVI that he presented a list of names on a petition to start a dog park at the Knox Park Board meeting last month, but the board members reportedly told him that they would like to see people attend their next meeting who are in favor of the incident.

Richardson proposed that the fenced-in dog park be located in Wythogan Park in Knox. If that location isn’t feasible, then another location could be sought.

Several rules and regulations of the dog park would apply.

The dog park would give owners a place to take their dog to get some exercise and to be out of the house.

Those who are in favor of a dog park are not only asked to attend Saturday’s meeting but to show their support at the next park board meeting on Thursday, April 24 at 6 p.m. CT at the Knox Girl Scout Cabin.
