The small dog park at East Port Park is being relocated to the west end of the park, adjacent to the big dog park and in front of the Activities Room. According to the POA, the new park will have improved drainage, artificial grass, three large mounds in the center, a rear turf area for elevation changes, two new shade structures, and four new trees.

The current small dog park area will once again become an open space for other uses, and the shade structure currently there will remain. The existing concrete walkways leading to the main dock and the steep concrete path from the street to the dock will be removed. The pathway will be replaced with a more gradual pathway from the parking lot. Stairs with a railing will replace the steep pathway.

A 30- foot ramp with railings on both sides leading to the main dock will replace the existing aged wooden ramp. Picnic tables and a low retaining wall under a new shade sail will also be added.

The existing dog park was built in 2016. In April 2019, the POA Board of Directors approved a new design and funding, $31,775 from the Repair and Replacement Fund and $10,348.41 from the Capital Improvement Fund, for a new small dog park.
