Dog Park at Gore Street Park ($250,000)

Gore Street Park, East Cambridge

Convert part of Gore Street Park (Gold Star Mother’s Park) into a dog park with clear signage, a clean area for dogs to run, benches, and water fountains for dogs and owners.

Convert part of Gore Street Park in East Cambridge into a dog park. There should be a clean area for dogs to run, clear signage to mark the part of the park reserved for dogs and owners, comfortable benches for everyone to enjoy, and water fountains for dogs and owners. The photos below show examples of some of these amenities from a dog park in San Francisco.

The proposal’s costs for the Gore Street Park include a double gate area, a chain link fence around the area, trash barrels, signage, 3 park benches, fixed “dog toys” (tunnel, rocks, etc.), water line, and a drinking fountain.

    Excellent! The dog park in Danehy has improved life for the human and canine residents of North Cambridge significantly. Seems fair to have the same facilities available on the other end of town.

    The City was giving us a “NEW” park for a Dog Park not taking away a park that is already here for people. Not sure who proposed this
    but they also have the park name wrong – It is the “Gold Star Mothers Park” What part of the park is being taken away for the “Dog” park??
