A meeting held by the Parks Department at the Bohemian Hall, located at 29-19 24th Ave., on January 6 at 7 p.m will give dog owners a chance to voice their opinions about the specifics of the parks design. 

The $1 million dollars came from $500,000 allocated by Councilman Costa Constantinides and the participatory budget, after 773 people voted for the dog park. While another $500,000 being contributed by Queens Borough President Melinda Katz from her discretionary capital funds.
