Second Downtown Dog Park: Wedge Between Busch Stadium & MetroLink Line

May 7, 2015 Downtown, Featured, Planning & Design, Popular Culture No Comments

In March I posted how some want to turn a large developable site into a 2nd downtown dog park, see Temporary Dog Park On Former Cupples 7 Site Would Be Too Costly.  Then last month I offered an alternative location in existing park space, see Second Downtown Dog Park: Serra’s ‘Twain’. Today I’m suggesting another alternative location for a 2nd downtown dog park:

Dog owners are already using the wedge of grass between 8th St & the MetroLink tracks.

The site isn't flat -- which might be a problem or an advantage

The grassy area and adjacent parking is divided into many separate parcels of land, some owned by the State of Missouri. Most would agree, because of the small size, this isn’t a desirable site for a new building. The location is convenient to those living in the nearby Cupples warehouses. The Cardinals might be able to help out with finding a permanent dog park at this location.
