Stanley Dog Park Board Approved

LURAY, Va. (WHSV) — After a vote by the Page County Board of Supervisors, the City of Stanley will build the county’s first dog park.

The city proposed to build the park on a parcel of land on Hawksbill Park Road, adjacent to Hawksbill Recreation Park and Swimming Pool. The park would include a 50ft by 50ft area for small dogs and a 100ft by 100ft area for large dogs.

It would include water features for dogs to cool off in, things to climb and jump on, and trees, flowers, and benches for people.

The park will be called Bailey Legacy Dog Park. It will be funded by a Page County man named Donald Feliciano who wants to honor the dog who stayed by his side after he was hit by a truck in 2012.

“His dog Bailey stayed with him until the police and rescue team arrived. Of course the dog has died within the past two years, but he wants to leave something in his dog’s legacy. , so we’re building the dog park in memory of Bailey. He’s funding the whole dog park,” said Stanley City Manager Terry Pettit.

The dog park will be connected to Hawksbill Recreation Park with brick walkways that will also allow people to dedicate bricks in memory of their own dogs. The city also hopes to add to the property in the future.

“Later on, since we’re building here now, we’re looking at putting in a campground and miniature golf course to go along with the dog park to have activities for everyone,” Pettit said.
