Development of the Stragent Dog Park will soon begin on a portion of Hinsley Park. The 9.5-acre park will include off-leash fenced areas for small and large dogs to exercise and socialize. It is anticipated that the project to transform the currently wooded property into a dog park will take approximately 9 – 12 months.
While the City has provided some in-kind services, the funds and organizational efforts for the Dog Park have been provided by the nonprofit organization, Longview Dog Park, Inc. A significant portion of the donations were provided by the local Stragent Foundation. Approximately $55,000 has been raised for the project so far. For additional information about the group’s fundraising efforts, visit www.LongviewDogPark.org.
