Wag Dog Park and Other Improvements Underway at Giusti Park

Loakl News 073123

A new dog park and other improvements are coming to Richard E. Giusti Heart Par Cours (park), located at 600 NE 38th Street. The upgrades are part of an ongoing effort to provide quality amenities to residents throughout the community as the city prepares for its centennial in 2029. Giusti is named after a former Director of Programs and Facilities who was instrumental in creating the first walking course in Oakland Park. The park features a mile-long lighted jogging track with exercise stations. Improvements to the park are underway and will be completed by the end of the year, including:  

  • New Wag Dog Park
  • New trees around the dog park 
  • New parking on NE 36th Street
  • New ADA-compliant sidewalk 
  • Drainage improvements
  • Installation of new site furnishings, including new benches, trash receptacles, and water fountains

This will be the second dog park in Oakland Park and will provide a safe space for dogs to run free and enjoy canine agility stations. Dog parks benefit pets, owners, and communities, allowing dogs to play with other dogs in a safe environment, relieving stress for owners and their pets, and getting dogs accustomed to public spaces and interactions with other people while promoting a sense of community among dog owners. The City will add new exercise equipment to the park during Phase II improvements, which will occur after the initial improvements are finished in December.
