On Sunday, April 28, we opened the gates to our brand new Waterwags Dog Park, an almost acre-sized, dedicated space for residents’ dogs to enjoy the outdoors and play with neighboring pups! Have you checked it out?
Much anticipated among residents, it provides a fenced-in, wooded area for homeowners to allow pets off their leash and to roam around with no worry of running down the street. The park is equipped with benches and water fountains to ensure dogs are hydrated, and owners and dog walkers can take a seat and relax.
To celebrate the opening, we invited our very own residents with pet-focused companies to setup shop in the park, including Paws in Motion (a dog walking company) and The Pet Spa (a local grooming spa), while Maria G. Huntoon Canine Consulting Services was also there to provide training sessions for owners and their pups.
Savannah-based One Love Animal Rescue and Georgia Rescue, Rehabilitation & Relocation (G-R-R-R) both brought staff and furry friends, offering adoptions on-site and a raffle was organized to raise funds for the organizations. All of our residents were invited to check out the park, bring pets and spend a spring Sunday afternoon outside. Many also brought donations for the animal rescues, and over 20 bags of pet food were collected.
A conservation-based development, we are committed to honoring the natural elements that coastal Georgia provides. No trees were removed in constructing the dog park, and the park is a natural space featuring shade and open space which encourages outdoor exploration and enjoyment.
The dog park joins our list of homeowner amenities which include over five miles of navigable waterways, a Bill Dance Signature Lake, pool, fitness center, walking trails, numerous parks and greenspaces, community gardens and gated entry. The dog park arrives in advance of the much-anticipated Waterways Marina which is planned to open this year.
