Spread This Idea


Haskin Park, Northwood/Oak Park neighborhood

My idea to improve this place

Create a dog park in the back half of this small park. There is a large tree that could provide shade; all that would be necessary is pine mulch, fencing, and plumbing for water fountains.

So that people could... 

Use this under-utilized park (at least I never see anybody in it) and give their dogs some recreation without having to use gasoline to drive to either McAllister Park or the Madison Square dog park downtown.

Having a dog park nearby would also encourage people to walk their dogs to it instead of driving, thereby giving dog owners some exercise too (and helping in a small way to resolve some of the city's health issues.)

Because I want San Antonio to be...

Dog-friendly, people-friendly, health-friendly, and environment-friendly. In fact, I think the idea of providing more, possibly smaller, dog parks all over town should be explored.


Tell us what you think about this idea, or share links and photos to make your case.
