Proposed New Dog Park Design

The proposed location of the new dog park is on the east side of 49 Street on recently acquired land across from the Town of Ponoka Publics Works yard.

The current conceptual plans for the new dog park include a new parking lot and trail extension that would connect with the north trailhead of the Battle River Valley Trail System at the green bridge.

What’s Next?

The Town of Ponoka has completed the first round of public consultation on conceptual plans for a proposed new dog park. 

The Town would like to thank citizens who have provided input to date. Their feedback will be used to create a more detailed conceptual design for the dog park which will be brought back for a second round of public review and input later this summer.

The new updated conceptual design will also be posted here once they have been created and are ready for public review and input. More details about when the second round of consultation will begin will be announced in the coming weeks.

Construction of the dog park will depend on future consideration and approval of the park designs, location and budget by Town Council. 

The new dog park aligns with Council’s strategic priorities of enhancing the quality of life for Ponoka citizens through improvements to recreational amenities. Planning and design development of the proposed new dog park are also based on recommendations in the Town of Ponoka’s Downtown Action Plan and Recreation Master Plan.
