Dogs of Rivertown Dog Park started this petition to Nancy Anderson

Rivertown Dog Park currently has 3 distinct fenced areas. Only two of which have a sallyport (enterance from the outside).

We are petitioning the City of Hastings to add a third sallyport accessing the third area from the outside of the park.

This area is seldom used since getting to it is quite difficult especially when the "welcoming party" of dogs come to the current entrances. 

Why is this an issue?... small dogs are overwhelmed by the welcoming party. Tiny dogs have no chance. One paw touch from a large dog can cause the death of some of these tiny guys. Complaints are then made to Hastings PD.

Or, if borh large areas are taken up by the smaller dogs the arrival of a big dog should not drive everyone away. This takes away of the sniffing fun for all sizes. 

Regardless of the size recent shelter rescues (who are trying to overcome trauma and be socialized) they are often terrified and cower in fear of everyone. Not a happy experience for these guys either. We hope no dogs get returned to Animal Arc due to the inability to socialize. 

Rivertown Dog Park is one of the best South of the cities. Folks bring their pups here from all over. Redwing has their own mediocre park, but their residents choose to come to ours instead. Cottege Grove has a great park and yet many of those residents come to ours. Hopefully they also add revenu to our town. Adding the third sallyport will increase positive references to the City of Hastings as having a fabulous free dog park.  The cost should pay for itself with in time.

We also want to thank the City of Hastings for adding solar motion activated lights.
