Community dog park proposed for Port of Hoodsport
May 12, 2022
A proposed community dog park was put before the Port of Hoodsport for consideration on April 13.
Resident Bill Long, who moved to the area several years ago from University Place in Pierce County, is the founding member and president of SUN (Safe, Unleashed, Natural) Dogs of Pierce County, a nonprofit organization that developed and paid for an off-leash area at Chambers Bay starting in 2005. It operates in partnership with University Place and Pierce County.
The group raised more than $40,000 to fence and develop that park, and Long said he sees a similar need in Mason County.
