Attention dog owners in Orange, construction will begin early February to renovate the Orange Dog Park(Yorba Park). The park will be getting a much needed upgrade, but will be closed at times during the renovation. I have reached out the to the Orange Dog Park Association for info on closure dates, and will update this post as soon as I hear something. Below are some of the more important details. For the full story from the OC Register CLICK HERE.
Cost: $1.97 million to $2.5 million
Main issue: As a closed landfill, there is a lot of room for improvement to give the park a sense of being more thoroughly designed and complete, officials said. An aging vapor extraction and monitor system will need to be replaced.
Coming upgrades: Expanded dog park, new watering stations and benches. Pending funding, project might also include new picnic tables, portable dog exercise equipment, shade canopies and new restrooms.
ETA: Park closing for first phase of project within a few weeks, completion expected by the fall.
