Sorry, I meant to say what date will the park be open for visitors?

I agree.. but where could one go?? I would think you would want it to be close enough from main for people to walk to it while visiting Main. The old bank location by the old post office on Falls St. was a great location, in my opinion, but the city said no.

I wouldn't dream of taking my dog to a dog park.
If this was the case then dog parks and other types of venues mentioned in this thread wouldn't be so popular.

Although I am not a dog-owner, I think this will be a great assett. That said, I agree with others who say that a dog park closer to downtown is desirable. Perhaps one could be included in the park design that's to be submitted as part of the new Greenville Water development off of West Broad and West Washington Street (the so-called "amenity space"). It isn't the West End, I know, but I think it might have the best potential.

The Lake Conestee Dog parks opened today - separate areas for large VS small dogs, as well as having no corners for a dog to be trapped by another dog.

However, Charleston County has dog parks within their county parks. You pay an entrance fee which helps with the upkeep of the parks and it shows in the dog section. It's huge so the dogs are not on top of each other and it's very clean. There are many regulars as well. If there's a problem dog, the owner leaves. If they dont, a park official confronts them. I only take my dog to the county parks. It's all about watching your dog and not being distracted with something else.

This basically is what DALE COOPER wrote, so why do you have a problem with his response.

His point just went to the next level, that being , problem owners don't usually think they are and then, as you said will be confronted. This does not sound at all inviting to me. I too would not take my dog to the uncertainty of a dog park, where both the humans and the dogs are a complete unknown possibility. Sure things could turn out well, but I don't want to be the first to find out how bad the premise really is.
