We love the Columbia Heights Dog Park, but we know it isn't pretty. In fact, it needs a lot of work. That is why we formed 11th & Bark—we want to make the park better.
For several years, we have been holding park cleanup-days. (Keep an eye out for upcoming clean-up days.)
We would also like to make major improvements to the park. Our plan includes creating a multi-use space and adding a water source, a new surface, waste stations, and double gates to the dog park. Unfortunately, because the fate of the land has been in limbo, we have not been able to actually make these significant changes. If we are able to save the dog park, we hope to work with the city to improve and maintain the property.
