Cedar City Dog Park - supporting a

THANK YOU ENOCH CITY
for being home to Iron County's
 DOG PARK.

The location is approximately 6200 N Minersville Highway
2 miles past Midvalley Road, 
the Family Dollar Store and The Hub Pizza.
The location is 3 acres with water 
 and will be located next to the new
Enoch City Animal Shelter.

Ringing in the 2018 New Year with high expectations and resolutions, the Friends of Festival Country K9s (FFCK9s) Board Members are dedicated and resolved to seeing the Enoch Dog Park become a reality!

The fundraising efforts and community response have been excellent and we have over $15,000 set aside to begin developing and fencing Phase One of the park. As many are aware, the new Enoch Animal Shelter will be built adjacent to the Dog Park on 9 acres of land two miles north of Enoch off Minersville Highway.

On January 3rd, FFCK9 board members, Diane & Bruce Gil and Lynne Brown, met with Enoch City Manager Rob Dotson to discuss progress on the land and road development into the acreage. Rob Dotson is very positive and supportive and shared the blueprints and survey overviews of the land and new shelter. In summary, the progress to date includes:

• Road easements into the land via 600 East are in the final approval process. The final easement request goes before the Iron County Commissioners on January 22nd.
• Anticipating ICC approval, Enoch City has begun road grading and land development.
• Surveys of the land have been completed and boundaries indicated.
• Enoch has begun running the waterline to connect with their water system.
• Once access is complete, Enoch will dig a leach field for the shelter septic system.
• FFCK9s can begin fencing the first acre for use once the septic field is dug as our new dog park location is now the NE corner of the acreage.

The FFCK9 Board is determined to begin the fencing as soon as the septic field is in and the ground thaws enough for installing secure posts.

We would love to have the Enoch Dog Park open for use in summer 2018! Stay posted for more updates on social media and thank you for your continuing support!

Look for the new sign at the future dog park location.

Because our group is a 501.c.3 non-profit organization we can accept tax deductible and we are accepting donations to be used for this project.

Dog Parks are multi-generational serving teenagers to senior citizens.  The park is as much for the people as it is the dogs.  It is a location where people with similar interests can socialize, share information, & exercise with their pets. 

According to the American Pet Products Association, 56.7 million households have at least one dog.   Dog parks tend to yield more use than other parks because the of the large group it serves and it is used year round as opposed to ball fields only being used for a season. 

  • Dog parks promote responsible dog ownership by offering an off-leash area where dogs will not infringe on the enjoyment of other park users such as joggers, small children and those that may be fearful of dogs.  

  • It also makes it easier for the city to enforce leash laws.  It is a location where people share information and learn responsible pet ownership. 

  • Dog Trainers can use this centralized location for dog training classes, dog sports, pet adoptions, demonstrations & competitions.  

  • The Police K9s units can use this location for their training sessions. 

  • A dog park provides the elderly and disabled a place to exercise their pets in safety.  Dogs provide companionship to many elderly and disabled people.  A dog park provides an excellent place for them to enjoy the outdoors and socialize with others, which is important for their health and well-being as well as their dogs.  

In past years, Eagle Scouts expressed interest in putting up fences, gazebos for shade, bulletin boards, seating, permanent agility equipment, etc.  Contractors offered their services for clearing & local businesses have offered us discounts on products. 

The area is 3 acres at approximately 6200 Minersville Road, past Midvalley Road and the Family Dollar Store.  The location is where the new Enoch Animal Shelter will be. Our group will be working closely with Enoch City to help make this park to their specifications.

Being proposed:
  • Minimum 3 areas 
  • large dog
  • small dog
  • training/demo/or all dog area by appointment which will be used as a rotation area as well for maintenance
  • 6’ Cyclone Fencing
  • Double Gated Entry - so dogs cannot escape
  • Multiple Entries for each area – so dogs do not congregate in front of one entrance 
  • Maintenance Gates for each area.
  • Pick Up Stations – multiple. Encourages compliance of waste pick-up
  • Sanitation Receptacles for pet waste and trash
  • Rules Signage 
  • Seating with shaded areas
  • Bulletin Boards for postings 
                                                                             

Our group is very active in the pet community offering free and low cost dog training classes and seminars, dog sports, as well as hosting demonstrations and dog friendly activities for the community. This will be a great place to host our events and continue our work.
