Franklin has a new dog park on the town’s greenway adjacent to Big Bear Park.
The park is fenced and has two benches for dog owners to rest on while their pooches play. Friends of the Greenway, which oversaw the creation of the dog park, hopes to install more benches and canine agility equipment.
The dog park was funded entirely through fundraising and donations from individuals and groups in the community.
Dog lovers who want to help with future improvements to the park can donate via Friends of the Greenway, 573 East Main Street, Franklin, NC 28734.
