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.
