Does Westchase Need a Dog Park?

Some recent comments on our Facebook page led to this question.

When a recent story about a possible location for a skateborad park was posted to the Westchase Patch Facebook page, the reaction wasn't about skate parks. In fact, all of the comments actually were from friends saying that what Westchase needs is a dog park.

So, does Westchase need a dog park?

A quick search for the closest dog parks around reveals good reviews for the Mobbly Bayou Dog Park in Oldsmar and the Logan Gate park on Monterey Blvd. Where else can you take your dog to play off leash? 

The question seems to pop up fron new Westchase residents on a few dog related message boards. Maybe you know of another great local dog park that's not too far away. Either way, what do you think of finding a spot for a fenced in dog park closer to Westchase?

Another great park is West Park, off Occident (near Sligh and Anderson). It's a bit of a drive but a big park with divided sections for big and small dogs.

As more "baby boomers" retire, there is, in my opinion, less need for skate parks and more need for dog parks. I've thought that for years. Just one walk around the park on a given weekend afternoon and one can see how many dogs are being walked. It would be great to let them play instead of greet. It also provides a great social opportunity to the owners.
