Dog Park Meeting in Enfield

Enfield — An organizational meeting for a proposed dog park in Enfield is set for Nov. 14 at 7 p.m. in the Enfield Community Building.

The town’s recreation commission is considering a proposal for an off-leash fenced dog park on about 1.5 acres of the idle field adjacent to the Shaker Recreation Park. The proposal is for a volunteer built, maintained and managed dog park financed by donations and fundraising. The proposed park is modeled on the Watson Upper Valley Dog Park in Hartford, which has separate areas for large and small dogs, benches, tables, double-gated entries to prevent accidental “escapes” and dog waste disposal containers.
