There is no doubt that Alexandrians love dogs. A quick stroll down the sidewalks of Old Town, and you’ll see shops, artisans, and restaurant owners have left an assortment of water bowls and biscuit jars outside their doorsteps, welcoming dogs to take a break, and sometimes even to come inside.
The much anticipated dog park at Ellsworth Urban Park is now open! Montgomery County's first urban dog park recently opened to the delight of Silver Spring's four-legged residents. The 1/2 acre park has areas for large and small dogs, water stations and rolling hills to run around.
Montgomery County is preparing to start construction on downtown Silver Spring's first dog park across from Chelsea Heights townhomes. Ellsworth Urban Park will be home to the new play space for pups. Today, the park already features playgrounds, tennis and gazebo, all within walking distance of the shops in downtown Silver Spring and EYA's new homes at Chelsea Heights. The move by the County is a smart one, as there are now more households with dogs than kids and dog ownership helps people stay fit, social and active. The park is scheduled for completion at the end of 2015.
