Your four-legged friends are now free to roam off-leash at a number of parks around the Logan area.
Logan City recently passed a one-year pilot program to allow dogs in certain city parks. City leaders and volunteers spent the last month cleaning up the parks and installing equipment in preparation for the program, which officially begins April 15.
Russ Akina, Parks and Recreation Manager for Logan City, said he hopes the program is a success.
“I think that having a place where they can go off-leash as opposed to what we’ve had in place is a big help,” said Akina. “We trust that everyone will be responsible park patrons both for those who have dogs and for those who don’t, but want to enjoy the park as well.”
The sites include:
Jens Johansen Park, 850 East 100 North
Jones Neighborhood Park, 400 West 625 North
Kilowatt Park, 331 South 300 West
Logan Meadows Park, 350 South 600 West
Pioneer Parkway, 165 East Poplar Avenue
Ray Hugie Hydro Park, Northside of US 89 at Canyon Road
Logan Service Center East Lawn Area, 810 West 600 North
The pilot program sites include four parks that have playgrounds, one pavilion, and all sites are either in proximity or connected to a city trail.
