Does the Treasure Valley really need another dog park? Apparently, because the City of Nampa is planning another one.

Nampa Parks & Recreation announced their plans to build a new dog park just off of Smith Ave, between Middleton and Midway (see photos below), and that’s proven to be a pretty controversial topic, which we were not expecting at all. Read here for more on the unexpected controversy.

We’ve covered this announcement before; however, the park didn’t have a name or an estimated opening date. As of right now, the park planned for Nampa still does not have a name — it’s currently being referred to as, “Nampa Dog Park 2.”

But they do have estimated opening dates and more details about what the park will have. Well, opening dates might be a stretch... more like “time of year,” which isn’t very specific... but it’s something.

Here is an image of the Nampa Parks & Recreation proposed master plan for the new dog park...
