Born and raised at 51st. and Dresden Way,I’m a former dog owner for many years,but my health prevents me from being a current owner. I love animals and believe a park like this is a win win for both man and pet.
Please get one soon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
LETS GET THIS DONE
I just moved from Brooklyn and my dog and I were regulars at our last park. Let me know how I can help make this work!
I live close to frick park now and am moving to bloomfield next month and will surely miss being able to walk to an area that I can let my pooch run her energy off. Let me know how I can help out!
Let me know how I can help
Hope to see it come to fruition!
I think this would be a great idea and I know I would use this often!!!
I may be moving to the Lawrenceville area by October.
Hope this works out, we have two active terriers that love to meet and run around with new dogs!
Great idea – just reluctant about irresponsible owners bring down pitt bulls and letting them off the leashes.
I am looking to move closer to Pittsburgh in about a year. A dog park would definitely be a plus since I will be bringing my dog with me.
Thanks for starting this. Think cities – Pgh included – tend to undervalue dog parks. Depending on location, this could also create a business opportunity for a good local pet store that would provide tax revenue.
I can’t wait for the Lawrenceville dog park — it’s just one more reason to buy a home in the neighborhood. And our pug will love it!
Tho i don’t live nearby, i fully support SAFE dog parks everywhere! 🙂 woof!
LOVE the idea! (well mannered dogs only) Lawrenceville is a great community…I think the dog park will only be a credit to the atmosphere!
Look forward to helping when/where I can. Good luck!
I think it’s a great idea!!!
I think this is a great idea. I can’t wait to see it happen.

I applaud your efforts to create a dog park, I believe every community should have a fenced-in area for large dogs to run. Thank you
Glad to see this, just found out about it. Id like to help any way needed.
Since we’re moving to the area soon, I was researching where to take my dogs… Very excited to see something is in the works. 🙂
A dog park in our neighborhood would be a godsend for us and our Italian Greyhound
Thank you! (and “woof” from our dog)
I’d love to help and have flexible schedule; call or email me!
I love the idea!!!
Already on the committee!
I am just pro anything positive in Lville : )
Great idea guys!
Love l-ville, would be happy to have another reason to visit!
I don’t currently own a dog, but will in the future, and support an off-leash dog park regardless
