TC’s off-leash people’s park: Go people, go!
Go people, go!
Traverse City’s dog park has been going, as one observer called it, “bonzai!” since it opened last month. We knew the dogs would love it–they love pretty much anything–but the people have really been enjoying it.
I was there two weeks ago and counted 14 dogs and about 30 people. Others have observed similar numbers. After that, I started calling it the off-leash people park.
As the Record Eagle opined: “It’s hard to tell who likes Traverse City’s new dog park more — the dogs or their owners.”
It is about the people.
As expected with concentrations of people, the connections have started to take place. I’ve heard of at least two people finding work connections, have seen old friends reunited, and it is almost impossible to visit the park and not talk to a stranger. Great stuff!
As one of the volunteers working on the park, I’m curious in people’s first impressions and the connections made. Whether you’ve been to the park or not, please provide some feedback here:
