Input Sought on Jones Dog Park

July 24, 2023

The Cedar Rapids Parks and Recreation Department is seeking public input on converting approximately 10 acres of the former Jones Golf Course into a dog park. A meeting to share feedback on two conceptional designs will be held on Thursday, July 27, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. at Time Check Hall, City Services Center, 500 15th Avenue SW. The dog park is expected to have separate areas for large and small dogs, a training yard with agility equipment, an existing pond area, and a rentable zone for dog owners. The design team, Bolton & Menk, Inc., will collaborate with City staff to incorporate feedback into final construction drawings. Construction is planned to start in Winter 2023 and conclude in 2024.

The dog park will be ADA accessible and feature amenities such as parking, lighting, fencing, shelters, trails, landscaping, water, electrical service, and site furnishings. Access to the dog park would be available from a new driveway connection to C Street SW, north of the Tait Cummins Sports Complex.

Individuals who are not able to attend the meeting but would like to provide input can complete a survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Q8SJKJK.
