Try this one on for size

How about Hamel Memorial DOG park?

Hamel Memorial Park is off Clyde Fant Parkway. On the Red River and river trail, the spot is ideal because it is a big open space, it is by the water, it already has infrastructure in place (entrance & parking), it is at the end of the recreational trail that can end up as the destination spot for dogs and their owners.

I read in the Times that the area has problems with incidents of indecent behavior. A dog park eliminates that problem!

Some additions to the dog park may include a hose for watering off sandy dogs (and their owners), poop bag dispensers, trash cans, and perhaps a fence of some sort. A posted sign with city ordinance stating owners must keep dog under control, pick up poop, state potential fines, etc.
