City of Bloomington, Indiana – John Hamilton, Mayor

closed: Resolved #168485

Parks & Playgrounds:

Web Form: There is a huge grassy plot of land next to Sherwood Oaks Park that has gone seemingly unused for years. It would be great if this expanse of land could be used to create a dog park. There are many dog owners in the Bloomington community that frequent Sherwood Oaks Park, and adding a simple dog park there would give this unused plot of land some purpose and revitalize the park as a whole. This grassy expanse is located alongside the Jackson Creek Trail, a long sidewalk that many dog owners use, myself included. Having the dog park located here would be highly accessible, useful, and convenient. As you may already know, there is already a dog park in Bloomington called Ferguson Dog Park; however, it is in a secluded location and quite far off from local neighborhoods. Commuting there and back is a hassle, and I'm sure many other Bloomington dog owners would agree. This proposed dog park wouldn't have to be fancy. I suggest 2-3 separate fenced-in areas (each area suits different dog sizes/mannerisms) as well as a shaded picnic/sitting area. A dog wash station would be ideal, but not necessary. These suggestions are based off of the design of Ferguson Dog Park, so Ferguson can definitely be consulted for ideas during the creation of this proposed Sherwood Oaks dog park. In the picture above, the dotted lines represent a rough idea for the fencing that would separate the dog park into the 3 areas.

The suggestion is noted, in the mean time the Ferguson Dog Park can be used as we finish up the Switchyard Park Project. The inquirer did not leave an email to reach out.
