The West Norriton Board of Commissioners think that a Dog Park would be an excellent addition to our community. The first official Dog Park was built in Berkeley, California in 1979 and since then, there are thousands in communities across the country. These parks sustain open space and provide an opportunity for community activities. We will make sure this a safe haven for our canines and their owners. Our plan is to create a wonderful recreational asset for our Township.
What will this cost? Where will it go? Who maintains this? These questions will be answered with full transparency before anything is set in motion.
Gilmore & Associates assisted the township in creating a concept sketch plan and design for the proposed dog park at the Van Landeghem tract.
The Van Landeghem property was purchased by West Norriton Township through funds provided by Montgomery County in accordance with the Montgomery County Open Space Ordinance (Ordinance 93-3) (PDF). West Norriton Township acquired 15.10 acres and East Norriton Township acquired 19.54 acres of land that make up the Van Landeghem property. The total amount of funds provided to both municipalities was $1,051,520.
