New Dog Park Targeted For Improvements
The Marconi Road facility has rallied the community, Committeeman Jeffrey Foster said
Plans are afoot to improve Wall’s first dog park as community members are lining up to support the Marconi Road facility.
Committeeman Jeffrey Foster on Wednesday said that he was targeting the springtime for a push to improve the new facility, which opened late last year. But some improvements will not have to wait that long.
Foster said doggie bags, used to clean up after dogs who use the park, should be available before then. And Township Administrator Jeffry Bertrand said some of the brush and downed trees from Hurricane Sandy will be cut into chips and will line the two fenced areas of the park, which is located between Brighton Ave. and Monmouth Boulevard, near Camp Evans.
A local chapter of the Girl Scouts of America have committed to painting the fencing, and a Wall High Schooler has volunteered to do some sprucing up, including installation of benches, Foster said.
“It’s a real community effort,’’ Foster said. “In the Spring we’re really going to hit this hard.’’
