Many municipalities are now looking to design great dog parks with exceptional park amenities. Most of these towns have their hearts in the right spot. All across Canada, people are looking to put the best dog parks together so that people have a great place to take their pets.
Here’s a few things that we were able to find out about what goes into the planning process of the best parks with the greatest park amenities. We came across some interesting statistics about dog parks from a study done in Australia. When people were asked to name the biggest reason for visiting a park, a resounding 92% said it was to exercise their dogs.
When you ask the questions that were asked in Australia, in Canadian provinces like Ontario or PEI, you’re likely to get the same answers. People are always looking for places to walk their dogs. And of course, these kinds of studies are very important for planning what park amenities need to be incorporated in the plan.
Consider another interesting fact. A full 80.3% of the people who responded to the survey said they wanted the kind of amenities in the park that allowed them to exercise with their dogs. That translates into some fenced off areas that are as level as possible.
It’s important to remember that a lot of people with older dogs want to come to the dog park too. That’s where making it easier on the joints of these older pooches comes in handy.
Another important aspect of any good dog park is having an unleashed area. In the planning stages, it’s a good idea to look at the simple demographics of the area you’re in. Ask yourself if there’s any other unleashed parks in the immediate vicinity.
One of the other things you need to take into account is any potentially dangerous situation for the animals. Is there a busy highway or train that runs close by? Even with the very best fencing systems, some crafty dog breeds can dig under or run around a fence in a flash.
Parking and general accessibility are a few of the other options you’ll need to consider. When it comes to dog waste disposal, we have a variety of excellent amenities that are perfect for any dog park.
We’ve been in the business of supplying park amenities since 2000. Some of the best park amenities for both dogs and their owners are pick-up bag dispensers and waste bins. These dog park products help to ensure that the park is clean and environmentally friendly.
