The SaddleBrooke Dog Park was opened in October 2005 on property provided by Robson Communities, Inc., with funds contributed or raised by, and with the volunteer efforts on the part, of dog park members. The park sits on approximately one acre, and has separate areas for large and small dogs. Since its inception, volunteers have made the following improvements to the park: grass was installed in both the large and small areas; a maintenance shed was built; trees were planted and park benches installed; new dog park waste containers on both sides; privacy barriers to minimize unwanted interaction between large and small dogs; shade ramadas for dog owners; and a park sign. A great initial vision, dedicated volunteers, successful special events and continuous improvements have contributed to a steady increase in membership from the initial 60-plus, to the current association 225 active members.
Although Robson provided the land on which to build the dog park, the developer has not and is not currently helping with the improvements or maintenance of the park. Dog Park Board members continue to work with Robson to solicit such support as we believe we are a valued amenity for residents. We also work with the HOA #2 leadership. All improvements to the park have come from our members volunteering their time and efforts.
