After many years of contacting Luray administrations for the construction of a dog park, we finally realized they were not interested in the dog owners of Luray.
Even when the towns of Elkton, Grottoes and Timberville did construct dog parks for their residents, Luray was not interested.
But when the town placed the ridiculous area on Broad Street at a cost of $100,000 for seven parking spots, we felt that we must respond.
That works out to roughly $14,284 a spot. Could have constructed a nice dog park for the price of two spaces.
We urge dog owners of the area to question as to why the town is so against providing their residents, and tax payers, something useful.
We have even been questioned by tourists with dogs as to why the town has none.
Our response is that the town is not interested.
