“Are they expanding the dog park a Constitution Green? It looks like they’re doing something.”
– Bungalower Reader
Short answer, reader, yes they are expanding the dog park.
The City of Orlando will close the Constitution Green Dog Park for scheduled maintenance and to add a few new amenities, including a larger plaza area, more public seating, new sod, new curbs, and more mulched areas.
The dog area will be slightly enlarged and the drainage will also be improved so it can dry out faster following rainfall.
According to the City’s Public Information Officer, Karyn “The Rockstar” Barber, the overhaul is expected to take roughly eight to ten weeks; which includes time for the sod to sit and take root before people are allowed to play on it.
Barber reiterated that during this phase, Downtown residents could still take advantage of other nearby dog parks, including:
899 Coy Drive, Orlando, FL 32803
9 a.m.–30 minutes before sunset
The dog park includes areas for small and large dogs, shade trees, benches, waste receptacles, doggie-bag dispensers, dog drinking fountains, fire hydrants, re-purposed storm pipes, and an entrance with double gates, benches, and a dog wash station.
