Prepare Your Pup! New McChesney Dog Park now open
PORT ST. LUCIE – The City of Port St. Lucie’s four-legged residents have a new place to run and play at the City's third dog park located at McChesney Park, open daily from 8 a.m. until sunset seven days a week
“We are excited to offer the City’s third dog park and serve our furry, four-legged friends and their owners with a park in the western sector of the City,” said Sherman Conrad, Parks & Recreation Director.
The new dog park is similar in size and design to the one within Lyngate Park at three-quarters of an acre. McChesney Dog Park, at 1585 SW Cashmere Blvd., consists of three separate fenced-in compounds; one each for small, medium and large dogs. It includes benches, water fountains, shade structures and an obstacle course for the dogs.
The City held a small opening ceremony at 8:30 a.m. on August 3 to commemorate this exciting enhancement to McChesney Park.
All dogs who visit must have current licenses and vaccinations. Dogs that are aggressive or in heat are not allowed. There are no lights for nighttime use. Pet owners are responsible for picking up after their pets. Doggie waste stations with bags and disposal containers will be provided. Admission and parking are free.
The City of Port St. Lucie was recently certified a BETTER CITY FOR PETS™, showcasing its commitment to creating a pet-friendly community. In January, Mars Petcare launched the BETTER CITY FOR PETS™ certification, an extension of the BETTER CITIES FOR PETS™ program, which works with local government, businesses and non-profits to help communities make four-legged friends welcome.
