Diamond Bar's Dog Park Completion on Track

City officials expect the park will open by mid- to late-November.

It may not be immediately evident, but work is progressing on a new dog park planned at Pantera Park.

“They are surveying this week,” said Marsha Roa, Public Information Manager with the city of Diamond Bar. But the heavy equipment is not in full-time use yet, city officials said.

“The Dog Park is still on track for completion in mid- to late-November,” Roa said.

City officials had wanted to hold an opening in the park before the end of August.

But the project was delayed by four months after the city replaced a contractor that was unable to secure the proper bonds needed to begin the project.

Torres Construction, Inc. was awarded the $103,941 contract on Aug. 24. Crews will be installing an 8-foot wide walkway that will lead from Pantera Park to the adjacent dog park property.

Plans include two enclosures, a 19,400-square-foot area for small dogs less than 25 pounds, the other a 39,400-square-foot area for large dogs 25 pounds or larger.

A few stakes and orange streamers and the weeds gone don't make much of a start on DB's new dog park. I'd like to see a copy of the plans for this area. From what I see this could very easily be a bust as a dog park. It's a treeless area that gets up to over a 100 degrees during the summer and it backs up to prime rattlesnake habitat. It is going to be a hot, snake infested, no shade, small, grass less hole in the ground. I'm not sure that it will be used much after all the extra expense and nearly two years in developing. Shame on our city officials for thinking so little of our dear pets...!
