"It's been fun to see just how excited residents are about this dog park," said John Robinson, the Arlington Heights Park District's superintendent of recreation. "We think it's great that people are taking such an active role in helping us come up with a name befitting of the new facility."

The joint dog park will offer 1.82 acres of outdoor space for dogs at Melas Park, 1500 W. Central Road.
