The exhaustingly long wait has finally come to an end. On the 17th of August 2016, the Frondoso apartment complex of Interlomas, Mexico City inaugurated a celebration, felicitating the new opening of an innovative application of its remaining area of land – a dog park. This was quite clearly observed to be a delightful introduction to many of those who possess a dog in the Frondoso community, as it significantly reduced the number of stimulated conflicts regarding excessive commotion caused by the dogs in indoor environments.
Since day 1, numerous Frondoso residents have been spotted utilizing this one-of-a-kind facility, having a bare minimum of 6 people in the park everyday. Nonetheless, we come to wonder, what was the principal reason as to why this rather exotic facility became so popular so quickly? The answer lies in the responses of the Frondoso residents themselves.
Josefina Rodríguez Garcia, a muchacha (spanish term for maids) of Mexican origins, who works for a family in Tower F of room 402, expressed her opinion about the newly established dog park of Frondoso, “The family I work for, not long ago, had a fuss with the manager of the apartment complex about the large amount of noise and pestering the two dogs have been causing to nearby neighbors. So, nearby neighbors have recently protested in a way to make it obligatory for the family I work for to make the dogs spend most of their time outside, to minimize the annoyance they give to others. This was highly problematic, until this excellent idea of a dog park appeared. It was great relief!”
While some find the dog park as a method to avoid a possible public scandal, others find it as a superb foundation for daily relaxation and bonding with their dogs. First off, Julie Diana Hernandez a 22-year-old resident of Tower B of Frondoso opined, “this is a great addition to the Frondoso roster of facility excellence I must say. I really needed a way to eradicate my gradually accumulated stress, so having a blast with my dog, Parker, in this new dog park was the perfect method.”
Also, Martin Gerald, a junior at Greengates School said, “the name ‘dog’ park really gives it away doesn’t it? The first thing you think is that it’s a park primarily and only for dogs and owners, but that, I say, is a misconception. It’s actually a park that is dog friendly, not necessarily specialized for dogs. What I mean is that you and your friends can even go out there to hang out at times, without even a dog! Also, what I love about this new dog park, is the massive area it takes up. Legit, there is so much space available for almost anything to do outside, even for a proper game of soccer without even having to worry about bothering others there, and at times, I just like to socialize with some of the dogs there and play fetch or something with them.”
It is a total joy to see that the Frondoso’s new dog park is being welcomed warmly and cherished. As a Frondoso resident myself, I wholeheartedly wish for the best of luck and brightest future for the Frondoso dog park, and hope this facility will last for a good long time.
