Washington Jefferson Dog Park Survey
As WJ Park reopens to the public after three years of COVID related closures and renovations, park programming has become ever more important in keeping the park safe and welcoming for all visitors. Some Whiteaker neighbors have expressed support for the idea of a dog park in the past and we are reaching out to assess broader public support for this idea. Take the first of two online surveys and learn more.
