The creation of a dog park in Uptown Collinsville enhances the livelihood of the area. As it meets the practical needs of dog owners, it also draws people to Main Street and facilitates connectedness among community members who share the space.
Oates prepared conceptual sketches and ideas for the dog park. The site is approximately 8,000 square feet and is framed with fencing and structures. Features include security fencing, seating, appropriate paving surfaces, drinking fountains, bag dispensers, and landscape plantings.
