Dog Park Development Committee Reviews Potential Locations


The Town's new Dog Park Development Committee has been hard at work in recent months, and has been evaluating 5 Town-owned sites for a potential new dog park.  

The committee has reviewed potential locations at Emerald Isle Woods Park, at the new McLean-Spell Park, near the Blue Heron Park tennis courts, at Senator Jean Preston Memorial Playground, and adjacent to the Town Administration Building.  After considering all 5 locations, the committee is now focusing on a 1 - 2 acre area in the new McLean-Spell Park, and will be working to identify the specific location in the coming weeks.

After the location is approved by the Board of Commissioners, the committee will begin identifying desired design features and begin fundraising efforts.  The committee is eager to make a dog park a reality in Emerald Isle within the next 1 - 2 years.  Stay tuned for more information on how you can contribute to these efforts!
