Sachse Dog Park Phase 1 (6 Months Approved)


Dog Park Progress Updates

Update 6/19/2017

The Garland City Council reviewed the proposal and had concerns for the following: 1) ADA Accessibility for the Parking lot and the Park. 2) Bathrooms for the Park including who would be responsible & cost associated 3) Trash Removal Agreements including who would be responsible and cost associated. 4) Location of the dog park withing the Bunker hill Park

Outcome: They directed the Garland Parks Department to work with the Sachse Park Pals to work out the details and cost associated with the Sachse Dog Park located at Bunker Hill Park. The feeling is the incremental cost of the ADA accessible parking and access will likely require incremental funds probably via fundraising efforts.

Update 5/3/2017

The Garland Parks and Recreation Board declined the offer to setup an Interim Dog Park at the Bunker Hill Park.  Therefore we will move to finalize the plans for the Sachse Temporary Dog Park.

Update 4/26/2017

We are working out the details of a possible alternative to ease the hours of operation restrictions for the dog park. We will have a better understanding of the options in a week or two. The Dog Park Funds are maintained in a Sachse Park Pals Dog Park Fund Account, this account is reviewed every month at the Dog Park Committee Meeting. Once we finalize the options, we will move forward with the construction of the Dog Park. We ask that you please be patient to allow us to work through the process.


We have received the initial Lease Agreement from the City of Sachse, which outlines the terms and conditions required to setup the temporary dog park at the Animal Shelter. We are currently reviewing the document to get an understanding of the conditions that have been stated and the increased cost of the project for those condition.
