Heather and Athens
Athens and I have a very active lifestyle, as do many others in Salina. We would love to expand and add to our standard dog park to use up some of that energy! Since Salina is a family-based town, how about a dog park with a spin off the ol’ family classic shipwrecked tale, called Dog Island?!
The park could have an “Ocean” area with a splash area for those water loving dogs to enjoy on hot Kansas days! The “Island” could have a bridge that leads visitors (humans and canines alike) to a large hill or grassy area for dogs to run fast and have different elements to play around! Of course on an island there is a small sandy area, where dogs can dig to their heart’s desire! Shade structures and benches could be found around the island when a rest is needed.
A “Tree-House” play structure could be found in the middle of the island where humans and canines could be active; equipped with fun features such as tunnels, doggy slide, or a ramp! There could also be “Shipwreck Debris” where dogs can test their agility and jump through or run around hoops and equipment.
We would love to have a park were dogs and people can come and get away from the hustle and bustle for an hour or two, and pretend they are on their own doggy island adventure!
