Downtown Arlington Doggie Depot, Downtown Arlington’s first dog park, is officially under construction. A groundbreaking ceremony was held May 15, 2024, for the park, which is expected to open in September at the corner of North Mesquite Street and East Main Street.

“The Arlington Tomorrow Foundation is delighted to help support The Doggie Depot. This gated space, near Arlington’s new Dream Park, will be a safe and attractive spot for residents and visitors to play with their pets while they are out enjoying the many restaurants, shops and cultural events happening throughout our vibrant Downtown,” said Mayor Jim Ross, who is also the Arlington Tomorrow Foundation board chair.

This project was proudly underwritten in part by the Arlington Tomorrow Foundation. The initial community engagement, technical assistance and design was provided through the Project for Public Spaces Community Placemaking Grant funded by GM, which also provided an additional $75,000 in implementation funds.

“Celebrating this groundbreaking is important as the Doggie Depot will bring a beautiful and useful public space to the community,” said Tom Read, General Motors Arlington Assembly communications manager. “Project for Public Spaces is a proud supporter of the new space.”

“We are so eager to get this park open for all the Arlington pups,” said Maggie Campbell, Downtown Arlington Management Corp. President and CEO. “It’s filling a void our furry friends are needing in Downtown.”
