Ruff Times: Dog Park Set To Open In W. Kendall
WEST KENDALL (CBS4) — Miami-Dade County is getting ready to open a brand new dog park in West Kendall so grab Fido and friends and head out to the grand opening this Saturday, May 21st.
The new Dog Park located inside the 164-acre West Kendall District Park, is located at 11255 SW 157th Avenue.
The 6.5-acre dog park features separate fenced-in grassy areas for small and large dogs, and a variety of dog play equipment, such as dog walk ramps, tire and window jumps and a paws table. As if that doesn’t make a pooch happy, there are ‘doggie’ comfort stations with drinking fountains and water sprays. There are also pooper scooper stations, making it more convenient for dog owners to clean up after their pets. Other amenities include an 18’ x 38’ shade canopy, benches, picnic areas, public restrooms, parking, and walkways that are ADA accessible.
The project, completed with Safe Neighborhood Park bonds and park impact fees totaling $1.18 million, marks the first phase of development for this park. Future development of this park will be funded by $23 million from Building Better Communities General Obligation Bonds.
The park will be open from 9:00 a.m.- 6:00 p.m., Monday-Sunday. There is no charge to use this facility and parking is free.
