Today’s post continues a series on a 2nd dog park for downtown:

Today’s site is close to residents in the Cupples district and is also a good site for new construction. Unlike the others, this site is privately owned.

The NW corner of 9th & Clark is owned by Digital Realty as part of their 900 Walnut data center (right) The background park with patterned walkways is owned by the federal government, related to the federal courthouse across the street.

Fencing this square would better define the federally-owned public park and provide much-needed activity.  The owner might get a tax credit if it leased the land to a non-profit dog park. As you can see there are numerous locations downtown for a 2nd dog park.
