Hoooooraaaaay. As a dog owner, this is great news–a new dog park that is a short walk from Borderstan, at 11th and R Streets NW.

I am going to try and find out if the park will be enclosed on all four sides so that we don’t have to worry about our dogs running out into traffic.

This message is from Ward 2 Councilmember Jack Evans on Logan Circle News on Yahoo! Groups:

I am pleased to announce construction has began on the new dog park near Shaw Jr. High School site – and at my request the project has been expanded to 15,000 square feet. On a walk-thru the community in September, Mayor Adrian Fenty promised the Shaw/Logan neighborhoods this much needed urban amenity, which was originally slated to be 10,000 square feet. Working with the Department of Parks and Recreation, after numerous requests from constituents in these Ward 2 neighborhoods, I asked for and secured the larger area. The dog park which will be located on the soccer fields near 11th & R is eagerly awaited. The park will open in the near future–stay tuned for the ribbon-cutting date and time! – Jack
