I'd love to see a dog park with off leash areas and trails, doggie water fountains, etc. :)

Other counties around Paulding have these. Why Paulding doesn't is a good question.

Welcome!

This topic was visited awhile back, IIRC. I don't have time to look it up, but didn't somebody say the Tara Drummond park has dog park stuff? Maybe Barbed Wire will chime in.

Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
O no! it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;

I asked about this last week and was told there were dog water fountains at the Silver Comet Trail at Seaboard road. The closest true dog park is in Acworth. If there's something closer, that would be fantastic.

Tara Drummond Memorial Park has funds that could be used for a dog park. I asked a year or so ago for someone to head up a group to go to the County Commissioners and ask what the requirements could be. The Tara Drummond Memorial Park is not a good site. There is not enough space for a dog park. White Oak would be a great place.....or possibly Taylor Farm. Tara Drummond Memorial Fund still has funds that are being donated to Criminal Justice majors at Chattahoochee Tech each year, but would love to help with a dog park. We (Tara's parents) still have Daisy....Tara's yellow Lab and we live in Paulding and would love to help with this addtion for the dogs.

Paulding's definition of a dog park is the front yard of any neighbor away on vacation.

I found this one in Douglasville:

Off-Leash Dog Parks in Douglasville
Deer Lick Park
2105 Mack Rd
Douglasville, GA, US 30135
Bring your pet for some off-leash exercise at this fenced dog park, which includes a separate area for smaller pets
See http://www.bringfido...ttraction/2264/

I have an off-leash dog park......My fenced in back yard.A place my wife and I paid for ourselves.We didn't ask for taxpayer money to provide a place for our dogs to be outside and not on a leash.

There is one up 92 in Cobb County. I took my dogs there a few times when we lived in Paulding, but people kept letting their little dogs in the big dog area, and my dogs don't like little dogs.

The county should have plenty of money for one....the SPLOST is generating SO much money, they are building a park at the new court house.

Why not a Dog park? :pardon:

Oh...BTW...this way, it wouldnt cost taxpayers anything...so dont go there...

Did someone donate all the land and money?........If not,then how will it be funded?.......The T in splost stands for tax correct?

Yes, that's correct. And SPLOST money can't be spent on just anything, it's allocated specifically and I don't think a dog park is included.

Sounds like a good venture for private business. Tax money is quite thin right now.
