Kinsmen looking into dog park in Tisdale

TISDALE — The Tisdale Kinsmen are looking into the implementation of a dog park in town — an initiative which currently has the support of Tisdale council.

The Tisdale Kinsmen wrote a letter to the Town of Tisdale that was discussed in council on Oct. 15. The letter asked for the town to put the dog park under their insurance, and look after ground maintenance and garbage pickup.

A location option expressed by the Kinsmen was at the old fair grounds parking lot, on the west side by the airport – but the letter stated they were open to other locations.

“There is an interest in having one, so we’re trying to figure out where,” said Al Jellicoe, Tisdale’s mayor. “Nothing has been decided at this point.”

Pat Edmunds, president of the Tisdale Kinsmen, said the initiative is something the Kinsmen have been thinking about for a year and a half.

“We had a member who had moved away since, but was really interested in it,” Edmunds said. “We thought it was a good idea.”

Edmunds said the current plan for the park is to have a fenced area where owners can bring their dogs to play.

“I’m not sure what kind of changes we will make after but initially it will be a fenced in area where they can bring their dogs and let them run free.”
