A group of Watertown residents is looking for a place to put a dog park, and the Conservation Commission seeks to redevelop the former recycling center at Filippello Park. But is that the right spot to allow dogs to run off the leash?
The town's recycling center and some basketball courts now sit in the area near the entrance to Filippello Park off Grove Street, but the area will be improved. Recreation Director Peter Centola said the town is looking to add something that fits the space and also provides something not currently offered in Watertown's parks.
A group asking for a dog park requested that at least part of the space be used for a dog park. Other ideas that have been suggested include a bocce ball court and/or chess tables.
Do you think Filippello Park is the right place to put a dog park? Where else could it go? Tell us in the comment section below.
