Construction work has begun on the dog park in Urbanisation Félix Rodríguez de la Fuente
The construction of the first dog park in Coin has already begun in an area of almost 1,000 square meters located in the Urbanisation of Félix Rodríguez de la Fuente. The works were visited by the mayor, Francisco Santos, together with the Councilor for Parks and Gardens, Vanesa Sedeño on Thursday, January 5.
Through a statement, the councilor highlighted his commitment to the park “so demanded by a large part of the citizens of Coín . Our municipality has a largely rural area where our animals can be, but we wanted to have a specific space for dogs as our neighbors demand”.
The dog park, which presents an L shape in its nearly 1,000 square meters, will occupy two different areas.
In one part, there will be an area for the socialisation of dogs which will have a picnic table, a sandy mound, and a water fountain for the dogs. In the other part, there will be a play area with up to seven games on an obstacle course, and will also have a picnic table and a fountain.
“The socialisation area is a space for those pets that are not used to socialising and interacting with other dogs,” explained Sedeño. In addition, the game’s track with obstacles will have a QR code where it will be explained how each game works. “It will be one more space for the walk and fun of our dogs and for the residents of the municipality,” he said.
Coin is a town located in the province of Málaga, in the autonomous community of Andalucia, Spain. It has a long history dating back to Roman times. The town is located in a fertile plain surrounded by mountains, and it has a warm Mediterranean climate.
It has a population of around 22,000 people, and it is known for its agriculture, particularly the production of olives and olive oil. The town has a number of historical landmarks and cultural attractions, including the Church of Nuestra Señora de la Encarnación, the Plaza de Toros (bullring), and the Casa de la Cultura (cultural center).
Though Coin dates back to the Roman era, it is essentially an Arabic town. Its urban structure has changed as a result of its economic strength, yet it still retains some of its original features.
Its most noteworthy monuments are the churches of St. Andrew, St. John, and La Vera Cruz, along with the La Fuensanta Chapel.
