During the month of February, 2014 the Parks & Rec Department opened the gates to its first dog park. Thanks to the hard work of the local Lions Club, $15,000 was raised and donated to make this happen. There are (2) separate areas for small and larger dogs, plenty of benches and coming in the spring of 2014, dog water fountains for each area. Just outside the dog areas is a small playground that is also new. The Dog Park is actually located inside of what is already called, Memorial Park. We hope our citizens and their canines can enjoy this for years to come.
