Village of Harrison sniffs out public input for potential off-leash dog park

Village officials suggest six possible locations

There are many pressing questions one asks while living in Agassiz-Harrison, but none quite so “ruff” as this – where in Harrison will the dogs run free?

The Village of Harrison Hot Springs is looking for input on potential locations for an off-leash dog park. Once the location is narrowed down, the village will conduct further public feedback sessions to hash out details such as park features and design concepts.

The survey takes approximately five minutes to fill out. It asks whether residents are in favour of the park, provides opportunities for feedback on six potential locations. There are also questions pertaining to funding.

Reactions to the survey have thus far been mixed. Some residents criticized the survey’s wording, suggesting a more open-ended question to add their own suggestions for dog park locations outside of the six pre-determined choices, such as the green space behind the village office. Other residents welcomed the opportunity for their pets.

Survey submissions will be accepted up until Aug. 31.
