It has been well over a month since the above photo was taken of the dog park at 17th & S. Since then, a small tractor was moved inside the fence giving people hope that construction would finally begin, but was then removed about a week ago. Dog park patrons have still been utilizing a small opening in the fence to let their dogs run around, but yesterday a lock was installed to keep people out. If they’re not going to do any construction, why keep people out?
Mayor Fenty said that the park would be completed by Memorial Day. I’m hoping he meant 2009.
