Friends of Grosvenor & Hilbert Park

Dog Walkers

Dog walking is very big in Grosvenor & Hilbert Park with dozens of people exercising their four (and in at least one case three) legged friends daily.

One group has become almost formal with the creation of a Facebook Group. The "Lazy Dog Walkers" meet on King Georges Field every day. As FoGH committee member and Lazy Dog Walker Sue Kaner reports:

Monty, my border terrier, and his friend Archie (a Springer Spaniel) are in the park every day.They are not alone: in the park there is a doggie world, best seen between the hours

of 7.00am and 8.30am, (9.00ish if you are a Lazy Dog walker!) and again at 4.00 to 7.00pm.

At these times, you will see numerous dogs of all shapes, sizes and breeds happily charging around playing together: a great way for the dogs to exercise and socialise, and for their owners to do the same. New friendships are forged, leading to new business opportunities and even relationships.

You see, the park is for us all: on two legs or four!

 You can find the group on Facebook here.
