DOG PARKS IN WROCLAW

If my memory is right, in 2016 there was a vote for new ideas that would improve various aspects of Wroclaw. The list included renovations of courtyards, skate parks, renewal of school fields and dog parks. Personally, I voted for the zone for dogs, because I’m having one. I knew that it would be a perfect place for everyday fun for him.

Dog parks finally became very popular and attracted the attention of many people, which of course helped to increase their number in Wroclaw. As a result, there are eleven dog parks today, spread around the city. The parks are located on Nadodrze, Ołbin, Srodmiescie, Niske Laki, Bartoszowice, Krzyki, Gaj, Zakrzow and Grabiszynska. Dog park are nothing more than a field surrounded by a fence, with two entrances. It’s usually covered with sand. The area contains ramps and obstacles for dogs and benches for their owners. The dog park is also equipped with special waste bins, because it’s very important to keep the place clean.
