Town seeks input on new dog park planned for Stevensville

The Town of Fort Erie is seeking feedback from residents.

In particular, they are looking for input regarding a new dog park in Stevensville.

The Town has an online survey at letstalk.forterie.ca asking questions about how they would use the dog park and what possible amenities would be expected or requested.

Elizabeth Latif, park planner and project manager for the Town of Fort Erie, said a location has not been chosen yet but the anticipated size would be 0.6 acres.

She said the feedback provided by residents would influence the park’s location.

“(Fort Erie) currently has one large dog park in Sugarbowl Park, which is 1.3 acres, and two separate dog parks in Crystal Ridge Park,” noted Latif. “The large off-leash dog park is 0.4 acres, while the small off-leash area is 0.2 acres.”

She added that the Town “plans to provide a similar area to what is available in Crystal Ridge Park for the proposed dog park in Stevensville.”

Currently, said Latif, the Town is gathering feedback from the community, explaining the next steps “will involve consolidating this feedback and incorporating it into the park design.”

The project is planned to be completed by late winter of 2024 or spring of 2025.

“Once the design is finalized, we will issue the project for tender to be constructed,” said Latif.
