the steps

Once collected funds are available, the La Vernia Dog Park Coalition, in coordination with the city of La Vernia will arrange for the construction of Waggin' Trails Dog Park.  Trenches for piping water will be dug and plumbing for water fountains will be laid.  Necessary items such as a sunshade, poop stations, benches & boulders will be put on location and maybe even trees will be planted.  Construction on fencing will take about 3 days and "Wah-La!",  Waggin' Trails Dog Park will be a reality and maybe even one day will look like this:

why we're doing it

The dogs all agree that a dog park benefits the La Vernia community in many ways.  They get a safe environment to run and romp off leash.  It will promote exercise & overall well being of dogs and their owners. Everybody, including Fido, can meet, socialize and make new friends.  And finally, Waggin Trails Dog Park will allow folks a chance to be physically active with their dog. 


In order to open as soon as possible, the La Vernia Dog Park Coalition plans to operate in phases.  Waggin’ Trails Phase 1 will include the necessities in order to operate a dog park, and Phase 2 will continue to add improvements. 
Phase 1 budget estimation:
•    15,000    Fencing and Installation 
•      5,500    3 Water fountains for dogs & people, +2 hoses/bibs
•      2,500    4 Poop stations plus 3 trash cans & supplies
•      4,000    Sun shade
•      3,500    Signage, promotional materials & graphic arts
•      2,500    Bridge across trench, boulders & dirt for dog digging

Phase 2 down the road might include the following:  
Agility equipment, lighting, trees for more shade, a dog wash station, a pool/pond/splash area for dogs,  bathroom for people and a closer parking area.
