Over the past two months the Park
District staff and Board have received numerous phone calls, letters, comments,
questions and concerns with regards to the development of the small Off-Leash
Dog Park on the southern 1 acre of Wynwood Park. Primary among the concerns was the limited
space, access, traffic and the actual ability to meet the needs of those
requesting such a feature in the park system. After review of these issues by
staff the following Action Plan has been implemented:
WEDNESDAY, MAY 25TH, 3:30 PM UPDATE:
THE FOLLOWING FIELDS ARE PREPPED AND READY FOR GAMES THIS EVENING:
EAST ST. #1, WYNWOOD #1, AND WYNWOOD #3
IN THE EVENT OF RAIN BETWEEN NOW AND GAME TIME, COACHES WILL NEED TO GET OUT AND CHECK FIELDS. IF PLAYERS/PARENTS DO NOT HEAR ANYTHING PRIOR TO ARRIVAL TIME, PLEASE SHOW UP AS SCHEDULED.
ALSO A REMINDER THAT COUNTY FARM FIELDS 1,2,3 CANNOT BE USED FOR PRACTICES OR GAMES THIS EVENING. THE PARK DISTRICT HAS AN EVENT SCHEDULED AND JUST ENOUGH PARKING.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING.
