Kamenetz Announces Funding for Perry Hall Dog Park
Towson, Maryland (July 10, 2013) – Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz announced today that the County will build a dog park at Honeygo Regional Park in Perry Hall.
"This park will add yet another important recreational amenity in the Perry Hall community," said Kamenetz. "It is very impressive that the community demonstrated its support for the project by raising $20,000 in private funds to support construction. I look forward to joining members of the community when we cut the ribbon for the park in the next few months."
Fourth Dog Park in County
The Perry Paw Dog Park will be the County's fourth dog park, joining the Barc Park at Hannah More in Reisterstown, Paw Point at Robert E. Lee Park in Lake Roland (recently named a Baltimore's Best), and the soon-to-be opened dog park at St. Helena in Dundalk. Perry Paw Park is currently in design and will be put out for public bid in the next four to six weeks.
The Perry Paw Dog Park committee will operate as part of the Perry Hall Recreation Council. It will collect membership dues and monitor the use of the park.
'Great Day' for Perry Hall
"I am thrilled that County Executive Kamenetz has announced funding for the Perry Paw Dog Park at Honeygo Regional Park," said Barb Waskiewicz, Chair of the Perry Paw Dog Park Committee. "This is a great day for the Perry Hall community, and I want to thank everyone who worked so hard to make this day a reality. I want to thank everyone who always believed in this project."
"I am very pleased that the County Executive has committed to funding a new dog park in Perry Hall," said Councilman David Marks. "I commend the many dog lovers in the Perry Hall community for their advocacy."
"I am very proud that we are able to manage the fiscal resources of our county wisely while we continue to invest in quality of life improvements all across Baltimore County," concluded Kamenetz. "I am always reminded that although we are a large county, in many ways we operate with the responsiveness of a small town, and that's a very good thing."
