The County of Maui Department of Parks & Recreation is well on its way to establishing the first public dog park on Maui!  In 2010, the county ordinances were changed to open the way for public park land to be designated for the use of dogs.  The department also developed and got approval for dog park administrative rules.  They are now looking at potential sites and should have their first off leash dog park in 2011!  There is also a community group promoting public dog parks, which has been actively meeting with the Department of Parks and Recreation.  If you want to get involved, call Liz at (808) 281-5385.
