There is another dog park planned for the Riverbend. The Wood River Park & Recreation Department is making plans to convert an area near the basketball court or near where the old baseball field was located at the 14th Street Park into a dog park, with funding to do so coming from a Madison County PEP Grant.
Park & Recreation Executive Director Jason Woody tells The Big Z they have been considering a dog park, and the time seems to be right to move forward.

There are also plans to repave the basketball court, and build an area for hockey players to skate.
