Much love for Chimborazo and the Church Hill Dog Park

Writing for Style, Ed Slipek has some good words for the Church Hill Dog Park and Chimborazo Park:

A little more than a year ago the city’s Department of Parks, Recreation and Community Facilities and a community group, the Friends of the Church Hill Dog Park, teamed up to transform this virtual no-man’s land of park space into a destination for dogs and puppies and those who love them. […] Apparently urban dog parks have joined the neighborhood coffee house and community farmers’ markets as must-have, high-touch amenities in an increasingly high-tech world. But who knew that on the far side of Chimborazo Park the creation of a new dog run also would reveal a forgotten side of something old — a glorious 19th-century pleasure park?
