Glencoe Park District Dog Park Task Force Application

Now Accepting Applicants!

Friday, May 10, 2019

The Glencoe Park District Board is seeking volunteers to serve on a three month task force to explore the feasibility of dog park sites throughout Glencoe. The group will serve in an advisory capacity to provide input to the Park Board on a potential location, size and features of a dog park. 

Task Force Application

The committee will be composed of volunteers both for and against a dog park in Glencoe. Applicants must be willing to listen to both sides of the issue with an open mind and possess critical thinking skills. At the end of the three month period, the task force will present their findings to the Park Board at a public meeting. 

The task force will explore six potential dog park sites:

  • Park 7n and 8n, located at the intersection of Old Green Bay Road and Maple Hill Road
  • Park 3n “Sunken Park”, located east of Old Green Bay Road and north of Dennis Lane
  • Watts Park, not including the athletic fields, located at 461 Jackson Avenue
