Nazareth Boro Park Going to the Dogs??

On November 1st, Lehigh Valley's 2nd dog park opened in Nazareth Boro Park, Northampton County's largest park.  It is a grassy, tree-lined, fenced in area on top of the hillside where dogs can be taken off their leashes to run and play.

 

The idea began about 1 year ago.  An area resident was willing to donate the labor from his landscaping company if the borough bought the materials and a permit was issued to allow the area of the park for dogs.

 

There is one other dog park in the Lehigh Valley and it is located in Bethlehem in Illick's Mill Park.  Two other dog parks are proposed in the Allentown and Emmaus areas.  These 2 are currently placed on hold.

 

There are 2 fenced in areas for the dogs.  One is for small dogs and the other for large dogs.  Rules will be posted and they will pretty much follow the rules that the Bethlehem dog park has.  It is asked to use "common sense".  If your dog does not get along with other dogs or behave, to please not bring it to the park. 

 

It is requested that everyone that brings a dog BYOW (bring your own water).  Installing a water line would have increased the cost of erecting the park which could have placed the project on hold indefinitely. 

 

The main portion of the park does not allow dogs.  Therefore, the entrance to the dog park is accessed from Black Rock Rd., which is a back road to the park.

 

Looks like Nazareth is going dog friendly!

Saw this in the paper today. It's a great idea! I am certain there will be lots of action in these parks. Our dogs would love it. Unfortunatly, nothing around us yet. But, once the exsisitng ones prove to be successful, I am certain more will follow.

It is nice for all area dog owners.  At least now there is a place to let your dogs get exercise and socialize.

It is a great idea!  At least now there is a place for these dogs to use up their energy instead of climbing the walls of their owners' residences.
