Picture Flaherty Dog Park

The Recreation Advisory Board is hosting two public meetings in July to solicit public input concerning renovations to Flaherty Dog Park.

“Picture Flaherty Dog Park” is an opportunity for residents to share their ideas about the future of the park.

Public meetings are scheduled at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, July 23, and Thursday, July 25, at the Wake Forest Renaissance Centre, 405 S. Brooks St. The interactive sessions will begin with a brief presentation, followed by an open forum discussion where attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions and share suggestions.

About Flaherty Dog Park

The Town of Wake Forest opened Flaherty Dog Park in June 2007. Located at 1226 N. White St., the three-acre park features a paved entrance and two exercise areas. Each of the fenced areas – one for small dogs and one for larger dogs – includes grass cover, picnic tables, shade trees, waste stations and a water fountain for both dogs and people. The fenced areas are accessed through a double-gated entry system designed to allow dog owners the opportunity to remove or fasten dog leashes prior to entering or exiting the facility.

Flaherty Dog Park is open free to the public daily from dawn until dusk. Before visiting the park, area dog owners are encouraged to review the Dog Park Rules of Conduct.
