Access to the West Side of the
Mendenhall Wetlands. The road to
the golf course is not to be used by dog walkers.
the gate is open or not, do not use the trail that
goes around the pond. The golf course road
is private property and the CBJ has insisted that
the owners of the golf course fence their property
off. This mostly has to do with access for
emergency vehicles should a plane crash happen, as
well as the owner's liability for people on their
property. People will have to park on the east side
of that end of Industrial Blvd. (along the white
fence that runs along Miller Const. gravel yard).
The CBJ will probably post no parking on the west
up after your dog: The Grateful Dogs of Juneau
reminds dog owners to pick up after their dogs. In
recent years, dog owners have made great strides in
promoting a dog friendly community by cleaning up after
their dogs. If we continue to clean up after our
dogs, we can make Juneau an even more attractive place
to live and a more dog friendly community.
