Commissioner Sally Heyman invites residents to join their canine friends for "Dogs on the Dunes"

Dog owners and their canine friends are invited to join Miami-Dade County Commissioner Sally A. Heyman, District 4, the Miami-Dade Park and Recreation (MDPR) Department, Parks Foundation, and Pet Supermarket on Wednesday, June 1, 2011 for "Dogs on the Dunes" at The Dog Park at Haulover Park, 10800 Collins Avenue, located between Bal Harbour and Sunny Isles Beach. Residents will have the opportunity to enjoy an afternoon at the beach playing with their pals in the water and on the sand.

Anyone interested in joining us is asked to meet at the Haulover Dog Park at 3:00 pm.  Participants will walk their dogs on a leash directly across the park to a coned off area near Tower 3 on the beach. For safety measures there will be Ocean Rescue on duty.  A $5 charge per dog for this event will go to the Haulover Dog Park fund for purchasing trees at the dog park.  There is a $2 charge per car to enter the park.

"This is a pilot event.  It's success will make this a weekly event through the 'Dog Day Wednesday Afternoons of Summer'," said Commissioner Sally Heyman. 

For more information please contact Commissioner Heyman's office at (305) 787-5999.
