What do you think about the city having a dog park?

Currently, I have no dog but I think a dog-only park is a waste of resources.

Jim Harris, Issaquah

I think it is long overdue! The ideal location for this and future generations of dog lovers to enjoy it is a fenced-in section of west Lake Sammamish State Park, where people and their dogs can congregate, monitor and get exercise together. I also envision a small roped-off section in the water where families can watch their dogs cool off in warmer months. A nominal $25 – $50 yearly fee or donation could be used to self-sustain this area and proceeds could be shared with the city, park and dog club organization similar to Marymoor Dog Park’s Save Our Dog Area.
