Riverbend Dog Park’s new waste disposal system is bagless
The Hancock Park District Field of Dreams Dog Park at Riverbend Recreation Area now offers an environmentally-friendly waste disposal system. The popular facility was closed during the last week of April for the installation of this unit as well as new fencing.
The disposal system includes a tank which eliminates the need for trash cans inside the dog park, although one trash can will be located at the entry outside of the gate. Patrons are asked not to place trash bags inside the tank as this could deter and possibly damage its composting system. Instead, HPD has placed scoopers for dog owner use beside the front gate.
