LAKE ELSINORE – The city of Lake Elsinore continues improvements to the community and pet amenities.
It’s a beautiful day at the Rosetta Canyon Sports Park, not only for the humans but for their pets as well.
After a relocation, some fencing and the addition of “puppy play equipment,” the Rosetta Canyon Sports Park Dog Park is open for the city’s four-legged friends.
This is the third city dog park with Serenity’s Dog Park scheduled to open in May and Summerly’s Dog Park set to open in June 2018.
“We truly embrace a pet-friendly lifestyle here in Lake Elsinore,” Mayor Bob Magee said. “It is also important to remember that these are the only places dogs may be allowed off their leashes inside the city limits.”
The new dog park is split into “large dog” and “small dog” areas, and each area has doggie play equipment, grass and fountains. Both sides have plenty of room for dogs to socialize and for their owners to meet new people.
“When the sports fields were being designed, a priority was relocation of the dog park with better functionality and more accessible location,” Jason Simpson said. Simpson is the assistant city manager and project manager for the owner build project.
In addition to the dog park, the community garden that was originally connected to the dog park has been relocated adjacent to the new location.
Community Services Director Johnathan Skinner said, “These amenities were definitely needed in the renovation of the park. The city increased the usability of the park, while keeping features that will bring people to Rosetta.”
As the community garden is now complete, city staff will be reaching out to the community for input on planting and harvesting. Interested residents should email [email protected] or contact the Community Services department at (951) 674-3124, ext. 265.
