Moon Township Dog Park


 


COMING SOON!! 

2020 was a record year for dog adoptions and purchases.  We know that many community members have been anxiously awaiting the development of a dog park in Moon Township. Moon Parks & Recreation is excited to announce that we anticipate the new Moon Township Dog Park opening in Spring of 2022.  


LOCATION

The new Moon Township Dog Park will be attached to the greater Moon Park complex.  Vehicle access to the park will be across from the new Downes Fire Station on Beaver Grade Road.  A pedestrian path will link the Dog Park to the main Moon Park area across Ewing Road.  The park will utilize the property to the west of Discovery Field.  Many longtime residents may know this area as the Duck Pond.  Before the construction of the airport, a pond existed along Beaver Grade Road.  This pond offered fishing opportunities in the summer and ice skating in the winter.  This area is included in the park lease and will link up to Moon Park through the Brewer Airport Toyota softball fields and the Discovery soccer fields.

 

DESIGN

The Moon Township Dog Park will feature an acre of fenced in space with separate areas for larger and smaller dogs. The site will have double gates for safety, benches, and a water fountain for both people and dogs. The parking lot will service both the Dog Park and the Discovery soccer field.  Later phases of the project will include permanent bathrooms and a small picnic shelter.
