WICKER PARK — Wicker Park neighbors can weigh in on what they would like to see included in a refurbished dog park in the neighborhood.

The Wicker Park Advisory Council launched a survey to gain feedback on a conceptual design for the project, which would be at the site of the current dog park in the southeast corner of Wicker Park’s namesake park.

The project is in its preliminary stages and the design will be updated based on responses.

The survey is here.

Neighbors are asked to share how often they use current dog park and to rank a list of features they’d like to see, including a dog drinking fountain, artificial turf and more.

The project is estimated to cost about $680,000, according to the survey. The Wicker Park Advisory Council has suggested the price be split between the Park District, the alderman’s office and money raised in the community.
