According to reports, the work on first-ever dog park in Navi Mumbai has commenced in full-swing since last week after delaying it for several years.

The park will be in an area of around 870 square metres within the existing 10,000 square feet Veer Savarkar Udyan at Sector 8 in Vashi.

Moreover, the cost of the park has been estimated at around INR 26 lakh and is expected to be completed in three months.

Four years ago, many pet parents had put forward a demand before the then corporator of Ward 64, Vashi, Divya Gaikwad for an exclusive place for their furry children to walk around. Later, Gaikwad had presented a proposal before the then Municipal Commissioner, N. Ramaswamy.

All the pet parents have welcomed this move and are eagerly waiting for it to start functioning. Navi Mumbai lacked a space for its pets. There is an increasing trend of adopting dogs and this was the need of the hour, said Gaikwad.

Moreover, to ensure the cleanliness of the park and that it is never soiled, Gaikwad has also proposed for poop bins.

The park is expected to have a separate entry and exit gate along with 15 play equipment of different sizes to suit all breeds. The equipment would include hurdles, balancing beam and stepping paws along with a water station for pets and seating area for pet owners.
