Well-behaved dogs may earn permanent dog park program

    Thanks to well-behaved dogs and mostly well-behaved owners, Lower Merion may move to make its dog park program permanent. The township is considering ways to work out the kinks and make improvements.

    Rolling Hill Park in Gladwyne and West Mill Creek Park in Penn Valley opened as pilot parks in 2009 for residents only, and let Narberth residents in in 2010 at a slightly elevated cost.

    As the Main Line Times reports, it’s now up to the township to determine if it can meet the demands of residents, like a lower registration fee and simpler process (the current fee is $25 per dog annually), and better off-leash hours.
