City seeks input on potential new dog parks
Your input and feedback are important to us! The desire for additional dog parks is identified in the current City of Ann Arbor Parks and Recreation Open Space Plan (an element of the City Master Plan). In an effort to ensure the Park Advisory Commission is responding to this need in an appropriate manner, the public is being asked for input on where one or more dog parks could be located and what types of amenities should be considered for inclusion in new and existing dog parks.

Gallup Park Livery & Site Improvements - Phase 2
Construction began in April, 2013 at the entrance and around the Canoe Livery to improve barrier free access and safety. Phase 1 of the project is now complete. Phase 2 is expected to begin in September (after Labor Day) 2013. The livery will be closed to accommodate construction. A temporary path will be constructed so that the loop around the park will remain open during the entire season. Please stay out of the construction zone and away from equipment for your safety. If you have questions or concerns, please email email@example.com or call 734.794.6230. Thank you for your patience during this project.
