Dog Park in Uptown

10 posts in this topic

Looks like Parks and Recreation is having a workshop for the new doggie park in Frazier Park. From the looks of it, I'd say a doggie park is highly needed. Every weekend, and lunchhour, you can see a lot of people walking their dogs uptown. Here's the info: Oaklawn Rec Center: 1920 Stroud Park Ct., Charlotte. 6:30pm. This would be a great amenity for those living in Center City.

Great addition to uptown! Like the new kids' park over at 9th and Graham, this is the kind of amenity that makes it easier for folks to make the decision to move to the center city.

My only concern was parking and my own sentiment that the doggie park will be overwhelmed. Just take a look at the amount of people walking their dogs downtown these days!

While there are seemingly more people in a concentrated area downtown, everytime I pass by any of the other dog parks around the county, they never seem overwhelmed with people or dogs.

I don't know....Frazier Park is kind of a hike....its over 1/2 mile from Graham St....I like the idea, I'm just not sure how many people will trek that far with their dogs for them to be off-leash....I could be wrong though.

A dog park uptown is a wonderful idea. Dogs aside, having one is a hallmark of a vibrant urban lifestyle. As Charlotte Native says they often function as great incubators to meet new animals of the two and four leg variety :lol:

I never met as many people in my life as I did the week after I got a dog and started walking it uptown :) Literally every single time I walked her for the first month or two someone would stop, ask what breed, how old, etc. Kids and seniors unfailingly stop and give a pup some attention.

Regarding location: I used to take mine to Elmwood on occasion and let her off the leash to run around. Elmwood's so spacious and generally not full of people, you can do that without worrying too much. But with more people moving in around the cemetery (Citadin, Garrison, the new thing on Cedar), I think it's good to have a dog park nearby to relieve that usage. It's definitely not in the most convenient location, but I guess beggars can't be choosers... at least Gateway residents will find it convenient.
