I got an e-mail from one of my South Perry neighbors last week. She had an interesting suggestion: how about turning that grassy area off Southeast Boulevard and 10th Avenue into a dog park?
Stopping by the other day, I noticed that lots of people are already walking their dogs there - so it seems to be a popular spot.
What I didn't know is that it's an underground water reservoir. So the property belongs to the City of Spokane's Water Department, but hey, maybe it could work out?
The city and Spokanimal are already working together on developing a dog park closer to downtown.
