Richmond Hill, GA (May 9, 2019) – On Sunday, April 28, Waterways – Richmond Hill, Ga.’s premier, waterfront master planned community – opened the gates to its brand new Waterwags Dog Park, an almost acre-sized, dedicated space for residents’ dogs to enjoy the outdoors and play with neighboring pups. 


The dog park was much anticipated among residents, providing a fenced-in, wooded area for homeowners to allow pets off their leash and to roam around with no worry of running down the street. The park, across the street from a neighborhood pool house and amenity center, is equipped with benches and water fountains to ensure dogs are hydrated, and owners and dog walkers can take a seat and relax.


To celebrate the opening, Waterways invited residents with pet-focused companies to setup shop in the park, including Paws in Motion (a dog walking company) and The Pet Spa (a local grooming spa), while Maria G. Huntoon Canine Consulting Services was also there to provide training sessions for owners and their pups.

Savannah-based One Love Animal Rescue and Georgia Rescue, Rehabilitation & Relocation (G-R-R-R) both brought staff and furry friends, offering adoptions on-site and a raffle was organized to raise funds for the organizations. Waterways invited all of its residents to check out the park, bring pets and spend a spring Sunday afternoon outside. Many residents also brought donations for the animal rescues, and over 20 bags of pet food were collected.


A conservation-based development, Waterways is committed to honoring the natural elements that coastal Georgia provides. No trees were removed in constructing the dog park, and the park is a natural space featuring shade and open space which encourages outdoor exploration and enjoyment.


The dog park joins Waterways’ already impressive list of homeowner amenities which include over five miles of navigable waterways, a Bill Dance Signature Lake, pool, fitness center, walking trails, numerous parks and greenspaces, community gardens and gated entry. The dog park arrives in advance of the much-anticipated Waterways Marina which is planned to open this year.
