There are plans to build three more dog parks in Baton Rouge.

Right now, the capitol city technically has three parks, but two are under construction.

Baton Rouge recreation officials surveyed residents a few years ago to figure out if there was a demand for an area devoted solely to pets.

Officials found that parks are beneficial to owners, because many people own condos or apartments and aren't allowed their dogs to run free.
