Construction Begins on a New Anaheim Hills Dog Park Next Month

Olive Hills Park

A new dog park is slated to open in Olive Hills Park in Anaheim Hills next summer, construction begins next month.  Check out this OC Register article for more details:

Construction contracts awarded for parks

The city’s second dog park is scheduled to open in Anaheim Hills by next summer, boasting an open space for canines to run and mingle.

Construction is expected to begin next month on the dog park at Olive Hills Park, featuring water stations, trees, a walking trail and separate play areas for large and small dogs. Earlier this month, the City Council awarded a $1.13 million contract to Horizons Construction Co. of Orange to complete the work.

“I do think it really is good for socializing the dogs and having the dogs’ owners go out and actually get to meet other people,” said Councilwoman Lucille Kring, who added that she has asked for dog parks to be built in Anaheim since 1999.

Kring also suggested a dog park be built at Maxwell or Twila Reid parks in west Anaheim as a way to deter homeless people from gathering – some residents living near Twila Reid Park has raised concerns at the council meeting. City officials said homeless people have largely stopped gathering at La Palma Park after Anaheim’s first dog park opened there in March.

The dog park at Olive Hills, just off East Nohl Ranch Road, was originally scheduled to open this year, but city officials said the site required additional review before construction could begin.

Separately, a new gazebo, benches, tables and play equipment will be built at a new pocket park in the 900 block of Circle Park, just north of Ball Road and Gilbert High School in west Anaheim. The City Council awarded a $383,465 contract to Micon Construction Inc. of Placentia to build the park by February.
