Navi Mumbai’s first ever dog park is now a reality
Vashi / Navi Mumbai: The much awaited Vashi Dog Park has been thrown open for pet parents to bring in their dogs for play and exercise. The park was delayed a lot owing to the pandemic, followed by pending construction work, which was recently completed, much to the joy of pet parents in Vashi and around.
The park was inaugurated by MLA Shashikant Shinde (NCP), in the presence of former corporators Divya and Vaibhav Gaikwad, several pet parents and their pets.
For those who don’t know, the Vashi Dog Park was the brainchild of Divya Gaikwad, who had been relentlessly pursuing the NMMC since years to turn it into a reality. It is a dedicated park for pet dogs and is situated within the Veer Savarkar Udyan in sector 8, Vashi.
Work on the dog park had commenced in the month of April 2021 but was delayed for many reasons.
