THE first municipal dog park in Almuñécar is now open to the public, located in the northern area of the Gardens of Al Hoceima.
The Almuñécar Town Hall, through its Environment Department, has promoted this park, in response to a demand from the local community and a request from the Almuñécar Animal Protection Association (APAMA), who, according to the municipal head of the Environment, Luis Aragón, have collaborated, side by side, on the project.
According to the Councillor for the Environment, who visited the facility on the opening day, the new space has rules for its correct use. The Councillor stressed the importance of respecting and using the facilities correctly, explaining that there are posters with the recommended standards on display in the area.
This enclosure, which covers an area of 420 m², will be for the exclusive use of canine pets, where they can be left loose, but accompanied at all times by their owner who needs to be of legal age.
To ensure the safety of all, the entrance doors must remain closed and dangerous dogs must be kept on a leash and muzzled.
