Bonnabel Dog Launch

Today in the Times-Picayunne: "Pet owners are raving about the perks for their pups at the dog run, part of a post-Katrina effort to rebuild and improve the Bonnabel boat launch area."

Using FEMA funds, Jefferson Parish Recreation Department repaired the parking lot and the fishing pier. About $350,000 of the parish's "nontraditional recreation" budget is being used for the dog run and a play area for small children.

Dog owners praise the run's low-to-the-ground drinking fountains, plenty of garbage cans and playgroundlike plastic tunnels.

"They say a space where dogs can legally go leashless and play with other dogs is a rarity."
