Londonderry dog park eyes area near athletic fields
Earlier this week, Scott Benson, a member of the Londonderry Dog Park Study Committee, appeared before the town council to discuss the possibility of building a public dog park on town-owned land along West Road.
Benson said he’s already discussed his plan with the conservation commission and Recreation Director Art Psaledas.
Since pets aren’t permitted on the town’s athletic fields, Benson admitted that the site’s current parking areas would likely need to be expanded to separate dog park guests from ballpark visitors.
Fundraising for the new dog park would be done independently, committee members said, with no taxpayer funds to be spent on the project.
Local pet lovers have been working towards the dog park project for the past several years.
In June 2011, former cable administrator Dottie Grover initially approached the council in hopes of forming a committee aimed at exploring possible dog park options. Later that summer, the council voted unanimously to form the study committee and members have been seeking a permanent home for the Londonderry Dog Park ever since.
