New dog routes launched at Langold Lake
DOG owners who exercise their pets at Langold Country Park can now take advantage of three new dedicated routes that have been specifically created for small, medium and big dogs.
The new routes have been devised by Bassetlaw District Council, in partnership with Dogs Trust, to encourage people to enjoy the benefits of fresh air and ensure that dogs, and their owners, gets the right amount of exercise.
These fun trails will be officially launched on Sunday 10th September and members of the Council’s Environmental Health Team will also be dishing out some goodies and information on how you and your dog can stay healthy between 9.30am and 12noon.
Cllr Julie Leigh, Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods at Bassetlaw District Council said: “We hope that local dog owners will enjoy these dedicated routes and that they will also encourage more people to use the park’s fantastic facilities.
“Don’t forget to look out for the colourful marker posts that lead the way and the extra bins where you can dispose of dog waste. You can also share your experiences with us on the council’s Facebook and Twitter accounts.”
All the routes start and finish in the parking area and incorporate easy, moderate and challenging walks, some of which include woodland paths, that are marked with colour-coded signs and also have plenty of rubbish bins where you can dispose of dog waste.
Maps of the routes can be found in notice boards around the park and in the kiosk next to the splashpool.
