Survey for Chelmsford Dog Park : Perceived Benefits and Successes

Written By: on January 2, 2018

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