Small Dog Area – yes!
Fred Anderson Park is open!
South Loop Dog PAC has been involved with the development and design of this DFA from the beginning! The dog park itself is certainly not going to be as big as we had hoped for, but a lot of thought has gone into the design, in order to make it as dog-friendly and easy to maintain as possible.
