With all the mowing, and watering, and annual re-sodding of the dogpark, wouldn't it make sense to put down artificial turf? Hell, the dogs would be happy with the stuff that was deemed worn-out and replaced on the Sycamore Park playing fields.

Or would it make sense to have another DP elsewhere, to spread the use around? There are about 10,000 dogs in Danville alone, meaning that there are that many people who might make use of these facilities.

The Hap is a terrific facility -- time to rethink its overuse in a way that doesn't close it more often? Can I get a paws-up?
