New Franklin dog park to open June 9Written by Admin
The new dog park in Franklin will open at 10 a.m. June 9. The park, sponsored by the Friends of the Greenway, is adjacent to Big Bear Park on the Greenway in Franklin.
Officials of the city and county and other guests are expected to attend the brief ceremony.
In late April, the public was invited to submit names to the Friends of the Greenway to consider for the new facility. The name of the dog park will be announced at the ceremony.
The new fenced park has been open for several weeks while finishing touches are being added. Two benches for dog owners are being installed, and eventually, the group hopes to add more benches and canine agility equipment. Dog lovers who want to help with these improvements may donate to the dog park through the Friends of the Greenway.
The dog park has been funded entirely by fund-raising and donations from individuals and groups.
