Island Dog Park’s Improvements Completed

Island Dog Park recently celebrated its 12th year of popularity and intense use, said the park’s designer Nancy Scozzari, with Queen Anne’s County. “We’ve been working with the Friends of Island Dog Park for a few years to maintain the area and keep it safe, but funding and lack of resources have made things difficult,” Scozzari said. “I am thrilled that resources finally allowed for our parks crews to knock out all the good work they’ve recently done to bring the dog park into ADA compliance and address issues that were of environment impact such as severe erosion/runoff.

 Parks staff spread wood chips, ground stumps, refilled the sandbox which serves as a doggie digging area, and constructed an ADA path from a spur of the Cross Island Trail to the double gated entrance and on the pavilion.

 “I’ve been in touch with one of the dog park’s frequent users who brings her wheelchair bound clients and their pups to the park, said Scozzari. “She had emailed me and said she was concerned when she heard of the wood chips being placed over the dirt as she thought it would prove difficult for the power wheelchairs; however, when they tried them out they had no difficulty at all.
