LOGAN – Most city parks are off-limits for dogs, but some would like that changed. Parks and Recreation Director Russ Akina said it is unlawful for any person to take any dog or domesticated animal into city parks unless otherwise posted.
There are a few exceptions. According to Logan City, dogs are allowed off-leash at Rendezvous Park and Nature Park. They are allowed on-leash on connecting walkways through Sumac and River Hollow Parks, in Stewart Nature Park and in Hyrum Gibbons Mt. Logan Park.
Akina said people have been asking to have the ordinance changed.
“What I do have expressed to me from people who want to bring their dogs to a public space, like a park, is that the areas they can take them to now, Rendezvous Park is probably the most used dog park area,” he said. “People have expressed that it would be nice to have a few more areas to spread out the popularity and the demand of Rendezvous Park.”
Akina said the department is recommending three new, designated, off-leash dog park areas: Pioneer Park, Bridger Park and Lundstrom Park.
