Dogs Parks Can Be Funded via CPA!
Off-leash dog parks are an increasingly popular use of Community Preservation Act funds. In general, dog parks are not that different from other types of parks and still meet the definition of recreational use in the CPA statute. Off-leash dog parks can offer a number of benefits to dogs, their owners, and the community. Well-exercised, active dogs live healthier lives (just like their owners!), and parks can facilitate socialization for both people and their pets.
Burlington’s Dog Park was created by the hard work and dedication of The Dog Park Committee, but CPA could have made it easier, and CPA funds could be used in the future to support the park.
