The DiMattina Dog Run is a step closer to getting a much needed and awaited makeover. The Carroll Gardens Dog Owners Group recently met with the Parks Department, Community Board 6 and reps from the offices of City Council Member Brad Lander and Borough President Marty Markowitz to discuss the future of the run. The renovation includes resurfacing the ground with crushed granite, additional lighting and seating, a new water/shower/drainage system and improved landscaping. There’s also talk of a designated area for small dogs. Carroll Gardens dogs are about two years away from fancy new digs if you factor design, approval, bids and construction.
