DCR says it has identified three potential spaces for a dog park along its Southwest Corridor land in Jamaica Plain, roughly between the Green Street and Stony Brook Orange Line stops.
The largest, roughly 1.3 acres of land stretching along Oakdale Street north of the Green Street T stop, would include two "adventure" zones as well as places for dogs to just socialize and get some water - which Friends of JP Dog Parks says could mean separate areas for large and small dogs.
The agency is also looking at two smaller spots near Stony Brook station, which would have a single "adventure" zone and a socializing/water area.
The proposals, presented Thursday, are DCR's latest attempts to come up with a dog park for Boston residents in JP, West Roxbury, Hyde Park and Roslindale.
Last year, the agency rejected plans by an area association of dog owners to turn a feces-smeared drug den and decaying former play facility for handicapped kids in Stony Brook Reservation into a dog park after state Rep. Angelo Scaccia dug up a 1967 law that seemed to prohibit that use. DCR instead briefly proposed turning nearly 40% of the reservation into a dog park even though it admitted it had no money to do so.
Around the same time, DCR proposed and then rejected turning a street-hockey rink off Anson Street into a dog park after neighbors objected.
