A new dog run will be constructed in Collinstown Park in North Clondalkin in 2021. Dog runs allow dog owners to walk their dogs off the lead in designated areas in public parks. The dog run is part of the Public Realm Improvement Works Programme 2021 to be approved by councillors at the February County Council meeting.
Local Councillor Madeleine Johansson said: “I’m delighted to say that the council will be providing a dog run in Collinstown Park. This is a great addition to the park, which has already seen a new play space and a teen space currently under construction.
I raised the possibility of a dog run in the park with the council when I was contacted by a resident last year. During the Covid-19 pandemic many local residents have enjoyed taking their dog for a walk in the park. When the dog run is built residents can walk their dogs off the lead without endangering people, wildlife or other dogs in the park.”
