Work Begins on Transcona’s New Dog Park!
Plans for Transcona’s new one-acre neighbourhood dog park were approved by the East-Kildonan – Transcona Community Committee today.
It’s the first dog park ever to be built in a new subdivision – a joint venture between the City of Winnipeg and Genstar, the developer of Devonshire Village. It’s also the first new dog park the City has created since Brenda Leipsic opened in 2008.
Landscaping and grading of Devonshire Dog Park will begin this summer. Russ Wyatt, the city councillor who made it happen by making a dog park a requirement of Genstar’s application, says he’s excited that it’s finally happening.
The fully fenced, off-leash area was designed with the safety and comfort of all dogs and dog owners in mind. There’s an area for dogs over thirty pounds and a separate area for smaller dogs.
Both enclosures have a double-gated entry/exit system to ensure that dogs near the gates cannot escape as new visitors enter the park. The system also allows people to safely leash and unleash their dogs when they enter or leave the enclosure.
Plans for the model dog park include some welcome amenities – a waste bag dispenser, a high-capacity underground waste bin, trees, and benches.
Devonshire Dog Park will officially open in 2017.
