New Dog Park Information

Thanks to a generous bequest from the Gloria M. Murillo estate, the Friends of the Pocatello Animal Shelter and the City of Pocatello, a dog park is being planned for construction at the southern end of O.K. Ward Park. This will be a community facility where dogs and their owners can run and play.

It will feature two separate play areas with one meant for large, active, and energetic dogs; and the other for smaller dogs or those that play more leisurely. Other amenities will eventually include dog waste bags and repository stations, water fountains, benches, and a shade pergola. The entire park will be fenced so that dogs are free to run off leash.

Below is a sketch of the proposed park configuration and location.

We appreciate your feedback on this project, either through a response to the Friends of the Pocatello Animal Shelter from this website or directly to our email at info@pocatelloshelterfriends.org.
