The Office of 7th District Long Beach Councilmember James Johnson and the Department of Parks, Recreation and Marine invite the public to a grand opening event for the Wrigley Heights Dog Park on Saturday, May 21, at 11 am. The Wrigley Heights Dog Park is located at 3401 Golden Ave.
The 1.9-acre dog park at the northwest corner of Wardlow Road and Golden Avenue was the site of the former police horse stable and later became passive open space.
“The Wrigley and West Long Beach areas are desperate for increased access to open space for recreation,” said Councilmember James Johnson. “The Wrigley Heights Dog Park will be an example of how to maximize the usage of available open space to serve the community.”
The dog park will feature shade trees, fencing, a mulch ground covering and an area for unleashing or holding dogs when entering or leaving. Dog pick-up bags, separate trash receptacles, benches and a water fountain will be made available.
