“One of my top priorities is to continue to invest into our local parks, which bring much joy to residents of all ages but we can’t forget our furry friends,” said Councilmember Price. “This brand new dog park will provide a space not only for our dogs to play and exercise in a safe environment, but it will be a special place where pet lovers can come together to relax.”
