Public Meeting Set for April 26, 2018 Regarding Improvements to the Paducah Dog Park

Date of release:  April 23, 2018

The Paducah Parks & Recreation Department is inviting the public to attend a meeting on Thursday, April 26 from 5 until 7 p.m. to view the future plans for the Paducah Dog Park.  The meeting will be at the Robert Cherry Civic Center located at 2701 Park Avenue.  Citizens will be able to view renderings of the planned Dog Park improvements and provide feedback.

The upgrades to the Paducah Dog Park will be funded in part by a $10,000 Bark for Your Park grant through PetSafe®.  The City received notification last August that it is one of 25 cities receiving the grant to implement irrigation and improve drainage and erosion issues at the Paducah Dog Park.  PetSafe® received 215 competitive applications.

The Paducah Dog Park opened in August 2012 on a seven-acre tract of land at Stuart Nelson Park.  The park has water, fencing, shelters, parking areas, and pet waste receptacles.  The park is partitioned into two sections based upon the weight of a dog with 30 pounds as the dividing weight.   For more information, visit
