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.’’

I hope that setting up by August includes dog park rules. The little children running around there are getting trampled and last time they were fighting over my little dog. The parents do not care and I know if they dropped my dog they would not cover the vet bills. I hope that you are considering the safety of the people and their dogs as you make improvements. I think putting the doggy bags out will help because it seems like no one picks up after there pets!!! I do love having a dog park so close to home and can not wait for more improvements.
