Dog Park in the Works for Wheeling Area

Posted: Updated:
WHEELING, W.Va -

Wheeling residents are working to build a dog park in the City.

Jeremy Morris is organizing the effort, with some help from his dog Lily.

Morris says he's had the idea for years now and he held his first meeting with other interested dog owners just this week.

Jeremy says the city has offered land beside the skate park in Elm Grove.

Miller would like to see smaller parks in neighborhoods like North and East Wheeling where a lot of neighborhoods don't have yards.

"There tend to be a lot of dogs in those neighborhoods and they do not have any where to let them off the leash and run. So it would be nice to see some of those vacant properties turned into smaller parks," said Miller.

If you're interested in helping with the effort you can search "Wheeling Dog Park" on Facebook. Also Miller will be holding his next meeting on January 30 at 7:00 PM at River City Ale Works.
