Group, residents against dog park proposal in Woodland Park

WOODLAND PARK -

There is a proposal to build a new dog park in Passaic County but one group says officials are barking up the wrong tree.

The plan would be to build a dog enclosure at Rifle Camp Park in Woodland Park near the Carnie Bragg picnic area.

Some park-goers are against the proposal.

"Garrett Mountain is 300 acres and it's all flat," Raymond Patterson says of another park. "They have to come in here and remove trees, put up fences. It's just ludicrous. It's a waste of money."

The county is also considering new playground equipment, a new basketball court, a picnic pavilion and renovating the bathrooms.
