Local efforts are being coordinated by Steve Whittington and Michelle White who advocate that a dog park would provide a place for dogs to run free for needed exercise. It would be a place where dogs and their people could mingle and socialize in friendly ways on neutral ground.

Leadville Dog Park efforts continue with the next meeting Oct. 22.

The meetings discussion topics will include updates from the committee’s meetings with the Partnership for Lake County Recreation and the Lake County Recreation Board, and discussing model dog parks and features to be considered for a local park.
