#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. At the intersection of Hantayskaya and Laureatov streets, a dog playground will finally appear, Norilsk residents have been waiting for this event since 2020. At the equipped place, it will be possible not only to walk the dog, but also to train with it.
Anatoly Golovnya, head of the improvement department of the municipal administration of housing and communal services, said that the place was chosen taking into account the residents’ convenience and safety. In his opinion, here dog breeders will be able to calmly work out training with their pets:
“Even if the dog runs away or jumps out, there will be no children around. The experience of placing a dog playground in a residential building courtyard was not successful: people from nearby high-rise buildings complained about noise and barking”.
According to Anatoly Golovnya, the contract for a full range of construction and installation works was signed last year. In a few days the contractor will complete the work:
“There will be curbs, fences, as well as the necessary equipment: barriers and obstacles for quadrupeds. The cost of 12 units of the kit amounted to 600 thousand rubles. In addition, four litter bins will be installed on the site. But there will be no awnings and benches – this is not a place for citizens to relax, but purely for classes with pets. Also, there will be video surveillance soon”.
