Project status: Conceptual

A group of volunteers are looking to create a dog park in Chatham.  The current plan is an extension of Volunteer Park in West Chatham.  The plan includes the following:

  • Add more parking to Volunteer Park.  The current parking is not sufficient for all vehicles at peak times.

  • Add an access to the proposed dog park with handicapped parking.

  • Construct a walking trail around the park similar to the proposal recently made by the Board of Health for Volunteer Park.

  • Construct fenced in areas for a dog park.

  • Review the species of trees and remove those in accordance with a plan designed by Wilkinson Ecological Design.

  • Add signage, rules and other essential details.

  • Create a means for the dog park to be self sufficient and not be maintained by Parks & Recreation.

  • Have the same hours and rules as parks under the supervision of Parks & Recreation.

  • Ensure a buffer of at least 100' to all nearby properties.
