Dog Park Pond Closed Temporarily

The Edmond Dog Park pond is temporarily closed due to concerns with blue-green algae in the area. The access gate is locked to separate the pond from park users and their pets.

“We decided to be proactive and cautious to ensure the safety of our local dogs and their owners,” said Parks & Recreation Director Craig Dishman.

Blue-green algae is common in this type of body of water due to hot summer temperatures and reduced rainfall. Staff will monitor the pond and determine an appropriate time to reopen it after the hot, dry weather pattern changes.

The pond was last closed for blue-green algae during August 2019. Updates to any status changes will be posted at http://edmondok.com and on city social media pages.
