City considers another dog park in Eau Claire


Eau Claire (WQOW) - Soon you may have a new place to take your furry friend for exercise in Eau Claire.

A meeting for the off-leash dog park is Wednesday and one thing up for discussion is the possibility of adding another dog park. It could be located off Ferry Street near the wastewater treatment facility. The city says the DOT owns the land and could donate it to the city.

The city is also considering using some membership fee money to increase police enforcement to ensure everyone is paying their way.

Braxton Stanley takes his dog to the off-leash park and says, "I don't like the idea of being checked every time I come in here and I don't think there's a huge amount of people coming in here that don't have the tags."

"I would prefer that they check tags more often to make sure that people are buying them and I know that some of the dogs that come here are aggressive and I feel like they should keep that in check," says Andrew Harris, who takes his dog to the park.  

The price is $4 a day or $20 a year if you live in the city. 

At the meeting the city will also talk about the possibility of fence advertising. The city says it could be an extra way to make revenue for the park.  That meeting is Wednesday at 5:00pm at Hobbs Ice Center.
