Join us for the grand opening of Bixby Dog ParkRelease Date: 2017-11-02
I hope you can join us this weekend as we open our newest dog park Saturday, Nov. 4th at 11 am at Bixby Park. Join community members and neighbors in this celebration of our newest dog friendly space at one of Long Beach's most cherished parks.
Bixby Dog Park will be the 11th leash-free dog recreation area to open in the City of Long Beach. This newest park makes a total of 11 acres in the City where dogs and their owners can make friends and be active.
The dog park was developed in response to a large community outreach effort by both Councilmember Jeannine Pearce and Councilwoman Suzie Price. The community determined the park location and the need to create separate play areas for large and small breeds.
The cost for the development of the dog park was approximately $100,000, with funding coming from the 2nd and 3rd Council District one-time Infrastructure funds. The neighborhood group Friends of Bixby Park also contributed funds for the fencing.
Long Beach Animal Care Services will offer a low-cost vaccine and microchip clinic, along with spay/neuter vouchers and licensing information at the event. I hope to see you this Saturday.
Go Long Beach,
Mayor Robert Garcia
