BOULDER CITY –
One thing is certain about residents of Boulder City: we love our pets! Reviews . com , a consumer advocacy organization , ranked Boulder City 39th out of the 567 cities it studied for available dog - friendly activities and 60th overall in 2019 . Letting dogs run and play is important for the health of the pet and the owner . Animal Control and Police regularly report injuries to humans and even deadly attacks between dogs off - leash . The City ordinance regarding animals - at - large is currently too vague for proper enforcement . Residents concerned about the suggested leash law changes worry that they won’t have a place where dogs can run and play .
The goal of City Council and Staff is to satisfy the need for pets to get exercise - safely - without disrupting ongoing activities and understanding limitations due to the historic drought . The City is in the process of implementing a turf removal program to cut down on irrigation; planting new grass is not a sustainable option . Council has approved more than $70 , 000 in funding from the American Rescue Act Plan to be used towards the park , but the big question is where should the park be located . Now , we want input from the community on a parcel that could be used .
The City is currently considering a . 81 acre parcel of grass at Veteran ' s Memorial Park ( see photo below ) . While the area would need to be fenced in , it already has grass and is not being utilized by any groups at this time . It ' s important the City seeks input from the community as this park is their park , ” said Taylour Tedder , City Manager . “It ' s important residents have the opportunity to share their feelings related to the size , appropriate location and amenities they want to see in the park .
The City has launched a survey and webpage to view the proposed area at

. The page also has a five - minute survey to gauge interest in the park , how often it would be used and what amenities residents would like to have with the location . The survey will be open until August 14 , with the results to be presented to the Parks and Recreation Commission at their next meeting . Council will receive the results and recommendations in September .
