Long Beach Mayor Bob Foster, 5th District Long Beach City Councilmember Gerrie Schipske, and the Department of Parks, Recreation and Marine invite the public to a groundbreaking ceremony for the El Dorado Park East Dog Park on Saturday, August 24 at 10 am, in the southeast corner of El Dorado East Regional Park, Area II.
“El Dorado Park East Dog Park is the City’s seventh dog park since our first opened at Recreation Park in 1996,” Mayor Bob Foster said. “Dog parks promote responsible pet ownership, give dogs a place to exercise safely, and also provide an area for residents and their pets to socialize.”
The 1.5-acre off-leash dog park will have double gate entry, separation between large and small dog areas, a drinking fountain and waste bag dispensers.
“I’m absolutely thrilled that this dog park will soon be open and serving the community,” Councilwoman Schipske said. “We’re creating a safe, fun area for dogs to run and play, and that will be so much fun for them as well as us.”
Construction is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
The dog park can be accessed by using the Spring Street entrance for El Dorado East Regional Park. For more information, call 562.570.3150.
