According to a report from The Press of Atlantic City, a city councilwoman would like to propose a dog park in Northfield, with one possible location being Birch Grove Park.

The report states that the proposed park would follow the similar guidelines of Egg Harbor Township's non-profit dog park on Swift Drive, which requires a $40 membership fee from residents in order to have access.

No plans or location for the new dog park in Northfield have been confirmed or finalized. Check back for more updates.
