There is a need for an off leash dog park at the Oceanfront!

We need this dog park for the countless tourist that come to our resort area and the residents that live at the Oceanfront that do not have anywhere to take their dogs to play and exercise. We are looking for a park that anyone at the Oceanfront can walk to, instead of loading their dogs in a car and driving all the way to Damneck Road to go to Redwing Park (or the other alternative to Woodstock Park off Providence, a good distance away from the oceanfront). Many Virginia Beach dog owners are elderly and cannot make the drive to these parks. We are also one of a few states that border an ocean, bay, or gulf that do not have a dog park on the beach. Being the resort area we are, shouldn't we accommodate everyone that enjoys our oceanfront and have a park where people can go with their dogs? We have 20+ hotels/motels that allow dogs but nowhere to take them to play when they arrive.

      We used ot go to the one near Laskin Road but this park has been given to the schools apparently. My dog loved it there. He isn't a water dog...actually hates the beach so a little park space like the city land that they're buying up for the arena between 19th and 20th would be a wonderful location and cost nearly nothing to maintain The houses have been torn down, grass planted, plenty of parking. How much could a fence cost? Then IF the arena get pushed through, we can find another place for our 4-legged citizens to play together. Thank you for the opportunity to sdpeak my piece./
