Englewoof Support for Southside Dog Parks

Dear Fellow Englewoof Puparents,

I'm reaching out to you in hopes we can connect and give support to one another in creating and maintaining safe and fun environments for our furkids to play, exercise and socialize.

There are currently three such places in Woodlawn aka 'Wooflawn' :
Jackson Bark (Road Hazards Agility Course), Wagsworth and Woofington.

and Bronzeville's Buckthorn Park led by Ephraim Lee xhle@hotmail.com

On a related note; if anyone has any old toys their pup has lost interest in, consider giving them a second life by donating them to one of the dog parks... also any grocery bags for the bag dispensers would also be greatly appreciated.

  • Really ?
    Every sq. ft. of land given to a DOG, is a sq. ft. that a child is deprived of for play space.

    How on earth can anyone be so selfish as to ask for public land for your hobby that you chose, that being a pet owner.

    People should only have dogs if they have a space of their own to let it run and move their bowels and pee on, not scarce public spaces at everyone else's expense.

    Jackson Bark, Wagsworth and Woofington are all abandoned tennis courts. As for South Shore Dog Beach, it's a strip of beach that the park district doesn't maintain or monitor so it's not safe for kids but perfect for furkids. As for Buckthorn Park, from what i understand the whole park...

    Jackson Bark, Wagsworth and Woofington are all abandoned tennis courts. As for South Shore Dog Beach, it's a strip of beach that the park district doesn't maintain or monitor so it's not safe for kids but perfect for furkids. As for Buckthorn Park, from what i understand the whole park is getting rehabbed, to which a fraction is going to be designated/designed for dogs. On the financial end, most if not all the money comes from puparents; city dog permits and DFA permits and private fundraising cover the costs of development... as for maintenance costs, the park district doesn't contribute a dime, it's all up to the puparent community to provide bags, repairs and clean-up. This is why i am soliciting for support.
