My husband and I recently relocated from San Diego to Menifee Valley (Sun City)...We came in search of land and affordable prices (and NEW homes). And we found it. We love our new development - Amberwood, by Lennar. And so far have loved everything but the bugs that the area has to offer. We're young - early 30's - recently married and are enjoying the slower lifestyle, the amazing sunsets, and the air conditioning.

The one thing that we feel Menifee is missing is a Dog Park! Our 65-lb, 6 month old Great Pyrenees agrees! While we were fortunate enough to have purchased a home on a 13,000 sf lot, we know that most new homes do not have such large lots. Even as it is, we don't let Borrego (after the desert) out into the backyard because right now it's a pile of compacted clay and rocks (and nails the builders left over). When we are ready to let her in the yard (i.e. when the backyard is done in say...2010) we will still want a dog park.

And our co-schoolers at puppy training in Temecula agree.

Socialization is not only great for the puppies, it's great for the humans. As my husband and I know very few people up in the area, it would be a great way to meet people who are (dog-obsessed) similar to us.

We've even debated opening our own puppy park...and would love to gauge what others in the community would think of having something like that available to them.

It seems to me that with all the development happening now, that one developer might agree with the idea and put one in for the community? Or at least, help out a community in securing a location and permits?

We're interested in hearing everyones thoughts! Please post or email directly to kj_jester@hotmail.com.

UPDATE (Apr 2, 2007): Todd has since launched an effort to start a private dog park. For more information, read these articles...
