Lacombe dog park closing

Lacombe will close its Michener Park off-leash dog park on Tuesday because of nearby construction.

Lacombe will close its Michener Park off-leash dog park on Tuesday because of nearby construction.

Land was recently rezoned for a much-needed hotel in the community and that has cut into the space available for dogs to run and raised safety concerns.

The city looked at other locations for the park but couldn’t come up with a good second choice so the park will not be relocated for now.

A review of all city green space is underway.

“A part of this process involves community consultation as to the use of these spaces, and an enhanced off-leash dog park has been identified by residents as being on the priority list of future infrastructure projects,” says community services director Brenda Vaughan in a statement. More information is on the city’s website at www.lacombe.ca.
