Silver Spring Needs A Dog Park or 2- Inside the Beltway

Charlie Cook - Cavalier King Charles SpanielWith all the new development in Silver Spring, more development expected, and the fact that we are expecting 2,000 to 3,000 more residents in the next 2 years there is a concern that our green spaces and parks will dwindle. As a dog owner I went looking for a dog park near my home in downtown Silver Spring. There are only 2 in Montgomery County:Wheaton & Germantown. I went to the closest in Wheaton. I was astounded to find 35-40 dogs and their owners in a 1/2 acre fenced lot with gravel and a few trees and picnic tables. People had come from all over Montgomery County – Bethesda, North Potomac, Rockville, East Silver Spring, South Silver Spring and Woodside. The dogs were having a blast. My own pup hardly ever sees other dogs and had a great time socializing. Dog parks are becoming very popular and are obviously needed and wanted in our county – Dogs that are socialized well are less likely to be a nuisance or threat to public safety – WE NEED MORE Dog Parks!
