As stated in the Mayor’s State of the City address, the City of Orlando will be getting a temporary pop-up dog park.
The pop-up park (or P.U.P. ) will be located at 319 N. Magnolia Ave., close to Sky House [Gmap], and is made possible through a partnership with PetSmart.
PetSmart opened its first portable community pop-up park in 2013 in Phoenix. The P.U.P consists of a shipping container that comes equipped with all of the ingredients necessary for a dog park; moveable benches, waste stations, ramps and more.
The 3,400 SF P.U.P. will be fully funded by PetSmart, and the City has a 3-year commitment from the private property owner to use the space.
The final design and timeline for the project are still in the works.
EDITOR’S NOTE: We have it on good authority, that this project was not inspired by the beguilingly simple pop-up dog park that we made for the latest One Less Car event.
