Low Gap Dog Park Q&A
What is a dog park?
A community dog park is a fenced area designated for the off-lease use
of residents and visitors who wish to exercise their dogs safely and
allow them to socialize with other dogs. It offers shade, benches,
water and disposal facilities for dog waste.

What is the purpose of the Low
Gap Dog Park?
- A dedicated dog park promotes responsible dog ownership. It
reinforces the efforts of local professionals, retailers,
organizations, and others who promote animal welfare.
- Dogs that get plenty of exercise and socialization are good
dog citizens and neighbors. Dogs that get plenty of exercise are
happier and healther than dogs that don't get a chance to run and play.
Exercised dogs are less likely to bark excessively, destroy property,
and annoy neighbors and passers-by.
- A dog park brings together dogs and dog owners in
neutral territory. Dog owners have a place to meet other dog lovers and
form new friendships.
- A dog park offers elderly and disabled owners with an
accessible place to exercise their companions. And a dog park provides
a tool for realistic enforcement of dog control laws.
- To promote the health and
welfare of our community's dogs by establishing an off-leash dog-park
where well-mannered canine citizens may exercise and play in a clean
and safe environment without endangering or annoying people, property

for dog lovers and friends who uphold the park's rules.

satisfy the needs of dog-owners and non-dog owners alike.
