It would be a great addition to a neighborhood in need of revitalization and promote the use of the park.

Would be nice to be able to use the park with A doggy park and seats around,one side could be play ground and doggy park and the other could be a walking trail with seats and benches,better lighting and sculputures,like the lids pace park..

Don't overlook the potential this park has to offer. Situated in a neighborhood that is prime for a breath of new life. I'm not convinced additional seating is what's needed as there's plenty of unused picnic-type accommodations already. On the other hand, fencing off a portion of the park for a doggie park would not only benefit the residents who do in fact use the park as a destination for their daily walks with fido but it would also be a draw for other dog owners who have very limited options in the way of downtown dog parks! And remember, dog parks aren't just for dogs; they are a meeting place for neighbors to come together & share a common bond in loving your pets! Every neighborhood should have a dog park! San Antonio should recognize this need

Dignowity Park is a gem that has been overlooked recently! This would be a great follow-up to the gardening day that Texas Public Radio hosted a couple years ago. I am very concerned about the dog park idea, however, because we all know that there are many stray dogs in our part of town; and there needs to be a comprehensive plan to protect dogs and their owners from dog packs that roam from park to park trying to survive. With many dogs using the shade near the cemeteries, it is almost certain that some of them would be attracted to Dignowity Park if there were other dog activity there. I hope a plan will be developed to ensure safety for all.
