The Alhambra City Council decided to put plans for a dog park on hold, expressing concern that the project would cost too much money.
City staff estimated that building a dog park would cost $439,044. This significantly more than the federal funds that the City was planning on using, with no guarantee that the federal government would approve this use.
The City Council directed staff to turn the site for the dog park at Almansor Park, which was once the lawn bowling court for the Alhambra Bowls Club, into green space. The City would revisit this project if Measure A from Los Angeles County became available, or if another funding source were to be identified.
The City Council also asked that staff look into relaxing local laws about walking dogs in Alhambra’s parks. Currently, dogs are prohibited from these areas, even if they’re on a leash.
