About this community:

The City of West Monroe is located in North Louisiana along the Ouachita River. This community prioritizes outdoor recreation with an emphasis on being family-friendly and providing amenities that enhance quality of life. In fact, the area is known as “the Sportsman’s Paradise.” While the city has a population of 12,431, thousands of people from across the region travel to West Monroe to utilize the city’s public parks and recreational areas.

Why this community deserves a Bark for Your Park™ grant:

The City of West Monroe deserves to win a Bark for Your Park grant because the community prioritizes the parks and recreation system, including the current dog park, which was established at Kiroli Park in 2012 and is the only dog park in Northeast Louisiana. In the 10 years since the dog park has been open, wear and tear from weather and use have caused needed repairs and improvements to the dog park facility. Community feedback from a recently completed city master plan reinforced the importance of these spaces for residents and their pets. Our dogs are part of our community, and improvements to the City of West Monroe’s existing park would improve the lives of the dogs in our community.

How this community would use a Bark for Your Park™ grant:

The City of West Monroe will use the Bark for Your Park funds to create a safe and more appealing environment for the city’s citizens and their pets. This work would include: Replacing water features and retaining walls to mitigate erosion and allow for sun penetration to promote grass growth. Encourage grass growth through grade establishment, irrigation, and Zoysia grass sodding. Install artificial turf near the entrance/exit – to deal with the high volume of foot traffic and prevent erosion at the entrance of the park. Improvements to the Dog Park at Kiroli Park in West Monroe would extend the life of this off-leash area and increase safety, community and health for our pets and our community.
