Chesterfield Patch readers expressed both approval and concern over a move by the city council that would allow pit bulls in the Eberwein Dog Park.
The city of Chesterfield's plans to remove breed-specific language from its dangerous animals ordinance and allow pit bulls into the Eberwein Dog Park generated a lot of reaction among Patch readers. The first reading of the amendment passed 7-1 at a meeting last week, with opposition coming from Councilman Mike Casey and Mayor Bruce Geiger (a non-voting member of the council in most situations). Some were happy to hear the news and said pit bulls suffered from unjustified negative stereotypes while others expressed concern for the safety of their own pets. Chesterfield Meagann Wilmes and her boyfriend own two dogs, a pit bull and a Chihuahua. Wilmes has owned dogs her entire life and said the way the animal is raised determined its …

The change will allow the breed to be brought to the Eberwein Dog Park in Chesterfield, a move which drew opposition from Mayor Bruce Geiger and Councilman Mike Casey.
The Chesterfield City Council is moving ahead with plans to remove breed-specific language from its dangerous animal ordinance, clearing the way for pitbulls to be allowed in Chesterfield’s Eberwein Dog Park. The first reading of the amendment passed 7-1, with opposition coming from Councilman Mike Casey and Mayor Bruce Geiger (a non-voting member of the council in most situations). The ordinance currently labels any dog that is mixture of bull terrier to automatically be deemed “dangerous,” requiring the animal to be registered with the city and be leashed and muzzled when in public. Chesterfield City Manager Michael Herring said the suggested change was reviewed by the city staff and the Chesterfield Police Department. The consensus was…

Where is this dog park?
Chesterfield's newest park got a more permanent sign earlier this month. (See accompanying photo) Eberwein Park has the popular dog park within its borders, and recently added more paved parking spaces when 1,050 residents paid to join since September 1. The park was private property until barely two year ago, when Eberwein decendents of the property owner agreed to sell to the City. Two houses on the property were demolished and a red barn propped up and used in part for park storage. It's located on a corner across from Monarch Firehouse No. 1 along Baxter, Highcroft and Old Baxter roads. Other portions of the park back up to Dierbergs Market Place and a cluster of seven tiny properties with large homes. Yearly fees to the dog park …

Popular park outgrew parking after three months.
Chesterfield's newest park, Eberwein, is set to get more designated surface parking ASAP. Eberwein's dog park—the city's first—drew more than 1,050 members over its first three months of operation, yet off-street parking provided just 20-25 spots. Monday, Chesterfield Mayor Bruce Geiger said the park was getting another estimated 15 parking spaces immediately. He said it was part of the initial plan. Patch did not yet verify the exact number of parking spots—new plus existing. Dogs and their humans may walk through adjoining neighborhoods to the park, but others of the resident-members drive to the park. As membership increased since the park opening September 1, visitors parked on grass and mud next to the paved parking area. Eberwein is …

Chesterfield's dog park is a month behind, but the adjoining barn and pavements are looking good.
Chesterfield's newest dog park is still under construction in the city's newest park on the corner of Baxter and Highcroft roads. Initial opening dates were Aug. 1, but now Sept. 1 is the target, city officials said. Several vendors will be at the park on the first two days open. Staff intends to be on-site to sell dog tags and supervise dog park etiquette. Aug. 31 is a ribbon-cutting ceremony by invitation only, city officials said. The city bought the 18.5-acre Ernst Eberwein property last year and demolished a 115-year old Queen Anne style white farmhouse that would have cost an estimated $400,000 to restore. The decision was not without controversy. A second house—a long, brick, ranch-style house—was also torn down. The fenced-in, …
