LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Lincoln could eventually open three new dog parks under a plan proposed by the city’s parks department.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports (https://bit.ly/1Y7OFLn ) the department recently completed a draft master plan for dog parks that is being considered by an advisory board.

The draft plan calls for new dog parks in northeast and southwest Lincoln as well as downtown. The parks department also supports making improvements to the Rickman’s Run park and relocating the Oak Lake Dog Park.

The proposals came after gathering ideas from an online survey, meeting with dog park advocates and examining dog facilities in other communities.

J.J. Yost, of the parks department, says the soonest work could begin on new parks would be next year.
