Survey for Chelmsford Dog Park : Perceived Benefits and Successes

A few months ago, we attended a discussion group sponsored by The Stanton Foundation on dog parks here in Massachusetts.

For those who do not know, the Stanton Foundation was established by Dr. Frank Stanton to support several causes, including Canine Health and Welfare, and includes significant grants for the construction and continuance of dog parks in Massachusetts. They are the main source of funding that allowed us to build the Chelmsford Dog Park.

At the discussion, a summary of a study was presented.

AN ASSESSMENT OF WHAT MAKES DOG PARKS SUCCESSFUL:
A CASE STUDY OF NORFOLK, VIRGINIA
Prepared By:
Dr. Edwin Gómez, East Carolina University
Dr. Lindsay E. Usher, Old Dominion University

After discussing it with the original author and adding a few questions, I am asking our park patrons from all over (and non-park patrons who are Chelmsford residents) if you all would take a few minutes to answer the survey questions. (It should take between 5 and 10 minutes to complete.)
 
This survey is anonymous. If we can get a valid sample size, the answers may be used in future studies and planning for dog parks.
