Shaw Dog Park
The Shaw Dog Park opened in August of 2003. The concept: to provide a safe and secure place for pets to socialize and exercise, to enhance city living, and bring community members together.
Shaw Dog Park is definitely about the dogs. It provides a place for urban pets to run free in a large space. They can play, run and socialize with other dogs as well as the dogs’ people. It provides an opportunity to raise a healthy, exercised, well tempered dog in a city environment, where yards are often small and not as hospitable to a pet.
Shaw Dog Park may be about dogs, but it is even more about the people of the community. While their dogs play, pet owners socialize as well, and new friendships have been formed (We await our first dogpark wedding). This commonality, love for a dog, has opened doors to conversation between people who may never had talked in other situations. It brings many types of people together and reflects the great diversity of Shaw neighborhood dwellers.
It not only brings Shaw residents together, but it has brought people from surrounding neighborhoods into our area. It allows residents from different parts of the city to meet each other as well. We welcome the opportunity to meet our city and county neighbors and invite all who are interested to join the Shaw Dog Park.
The Shaw Dog Park is located at the corner of Cleveland and Thurman Aves. It is fence enclosed, has lighting at night and water is available on site. There is a lock system, and there are rules and regulations, as well as a yearly membership fee for all members.
Come visit us, and watch the dogs play. For any questions call 314-771-3101, the Shaw Neighborhood Improvement Association Office, and leave a message or email email@example.com. We will get back to you ASAP.
