The city of Middletown should create a dog park for all of the dog owners in Middletown. They are a great place for people to bring their dogs to. They teach the dogs social interactions with people and other dogs and it is a great place for community dog owners to come together.
Middletown owns plenty of open space so purchasing a piece of property would not be required. Maybe they could take a 2 acre portion of Veterans Park or the park on Higby Road. Maybe even out by the reservoirs behind Middlesex somewhere. Anywhere.
The only things really needed would be fencing, trash containers, doggy bags, and a water supply. It seems like a pretty inexpensive thing that the city could do that would show that they care about the residents with dogs.
