Antonio Adorno started this petition to New York City Parks Department Travers Park

Jackson Height residents need to have a dedicated area for our dogs to run around and we are proposing establishing designated Dog Park in the newly renovated Travers Park; specifically the 'multi-area use space' on 77th Street between 34th Avenue and Northern Blvd.

While there is a private dog run located on 69th Street and 34th Avenue, there are many issues that prevent the Jackson Heights wider dog community from using it:

It is a private organization that has discretion on which dog applications to accept or decline. As such, it is not freely open to the public.

The location of this dog run is on the outskirts of the Jackson Heights neighborhood, and is prohibitively distant for Dog Owners/Dogs with physical ailments.

The dog run is literally underneath the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway (B.Q.E.) and is incredibly noisy, polluted, and unsafe due to lack of street lights and possible hazards. Furthermore, the history of drug use in this area is a deterrent for many people from visiting themselves, let alone with their dogs.

The Responsible Dog Owners of Jackson Heights in Collaboration with The Jackson Heights Dog Lovers would like to propose establishing dedicated Park in the newly remodeled Travers park that will benefit everyone. Having a space for our four-legged friends/family members to run around will strengthen the nurturing bond within the community that Jackson Heights is known for. An added benefit to allowing responsible dog owners frequent Travers Park during these proposed 'off hours' will create a quasi-neighborhood watch to promote safety in the heart of Jackson Heights. 

We sincerely hope you consider signing this petition and thank you for your support!!!
