The city is asking the community what it thinks of the new fully-fenced dog park in a five-question survey. For more information, visit www.lloydminster.ca. - Tom Pierson Photo

The City of Lloydminster wants to know what you think of the new temporary dog park, and how much you use it.

It’s that kind of feedback they’re looking to collect through the Off-Leash Dog Park pilot project survey.

Cindy Rekimowich, acting director of community services, said the new project is exciting for residents and their four-legged friends. She added the point behind the survey is to see how much support the community would have for a fully-fenced, leashfree park.

“We’re just asking the community to just give us some direction on how often they’re using the park, so we want to know how much it’s being utilized and the need for it,” she said.

“What’s working well with the park, what improvements we can make and we’ve got to set some rules for the park, so just make sure we haven’t missed anything before we move to a permanent location.”

The deadline to complete the five-question survey is Sept. 30. Members of the public can provide feedback about the park to the community services department by emailing info@lloydminster.ca.

Results will be shared at a future council meeting.

Opening on July 8, Coun. Chris McQuid said the park was brought up at the most recent regular council meeting for formalization.

He added there are minor costs associated with it.

“Just the fencing would be the over and above cost, which was just over $4,600 and that was already accounted for in the capital budget,” he said. “Minimal cost and I think a great benefit for the community.”
