Pack your poop bags, dog people, as a recently expanded downtown park is about to get a free, public dog park.
Nearly a year after leash-holders began baying for a pooch-friendly zone, the dog dad who helped lead an effort to establish a public, downtown pet park said this morning that one is on the way to Benjakitti Park.
“For me and my friends who signed the petition, we’re really stoked,” said Karan Kukreja, who works for animal welfare organization Four Paws and shares an interspecies home with one dog and two kitties. “We’re hoping this will be a really good example, and we’re hoping there will be more dog-friendly areas.”
The park will open next month at the location of former tobacco monopoly housing across from the jogging track pond near Benjakitti’s eastern entrance on Ratchadapisek Road, according to Pornphrom Vikitsreth, adviser to Bangkok Gov. Chadchart Sittipunt on environmental matters.
This Sunday (Aug 21) at 4pm, people are invited to City Hall their input at a location near the entrance and pond, he said.
