Dog Park proposed at Sandy Knoll County Park


August 14, 2019 – Washington Co., WI – The Washington County Park and Trail System is working on a plan to put a new 10 acre fenced in dog exercise area at Sandy Knoll County Park in the Town of Trenton, WI. This will be the second dog park in Washington County Park System; the first was Homestead Howl Dog Park which was installed in 2018 in the Village of Germantown.

“We’re excited to add another dog park to provide more options to the east side of West Bend, Trenton, and Newburg area,” said Eric Hyde, Parks and Trails Manager. “This dog park is funded entirely from local sponsors and donations from folks who made the optional donation when purchasing park passes for a new dog park.”




The second and final open house meeting for the public is Thursday, August 15 between 5 p.m.- 6 p.m. to view and comment on the proposal.
