Provide us your input on questions related to the new dog park!
Following an extensive public engagement process, an Issaquah off-leash dog park is identified as a near-term priority project in the City’s 2018 Parks Strategic Plan.
In total, $200,000 of City funds is budgeted for this project. In most – if not all – Issaquah park projects, City funds are leveraged with other resources (such as grant funds) to help stretch our local dollars further.
Similar to many surrounding communities, this project will also be seeking the community’s help in completing this park through volunteer efforts, or “community build” which will help stretch available funds and provide more elements/amenities in the off-leash facility.
This survey has two goals:
- Collect your feedback on potential elements and layouts of a dog park at Tibbetts Valley Park.
- Gauge volunteer interest to help construct the dog park.
The three conceptual designs proposed in this survey vary in development scale, as well as the amount of community support (both labor and/or donations) that will be required. In addition, we'd also like your input on preferred surfacing and fence types.
The feedback received from this survey will inform a preferred design (likely be a blend of elements from each design). The preferred design will be shared with the community prior to a final decision on whether we are moving forward into construction.
Each proposed concept includes some basic features identified through the public engagement to date including:
- Perimeter fencing
- Double-gated entries
- Shy / small dog area
- Service entrance
- Accessible entrance path
- Surfaced areas
- Trash cans
- Drinking fountain
