Manahawkin dogs will soon have two parks for socializing and exercise.  The Stafford Township Council unanimously approved a plan to open two dog parks.  Though the exact locations haven't been determined, the parks being discussed are an area close to the Beach Avenue Playground downtown and the Lighthouse Park (on Lighthouse Drive at Clearwater) in the Ocean Acres section of Manahawkin.

But the dogs prevailed!

Laura - I'm a huge dog lover and even volunteer at the shelter where I got  my beloved Lucy! A dog park is one of the greatest assets to any neighborhood - great for the dogs and people alike to socialize and the dogs get so much exercise. We visit my local dog park almost daily - dog people can talk about dogs for hours, myself included and this would bore the heck out of my non-dog owning friends!

Kristine-I think it also helps to socialize dogs so they're more used to other people and pets, avoiding many problems!  I can't wait for our dog parks!
