Neighbor Heather Ezell wrote to me recently asking whether Oak Cliff has any dog parks, and if not, what it might take to create one. I posed that question to former City of Dallas Park Board member Delia Jasso (who resigned her position to run for City Council).
Jasso says at the moment, no dog parks exist in our neighborhood, but if she becomes the District 1 City Council representative, she would look at putting one in for future planning through parks budgeting. However, she says, "we would need a concentrated effort from Oak Cliff residents to be advocates so that I could move it forward."
Jasso also recalled that the city was looking to put one in near the new Pinnacle Park soccer complex from the last bond program.
Ezell also provided an Animal Planet website that explains how to start a dog park in your community.
