The City of Clovis will be holding a ribbon cutting for the new dog park area at Hillcrest Park at 12:30 p.m., Monday, February 6th, 2012.
Clovis Parks & Recreation Director Mr. Bill Bizzell advises that the dog park consists of two areas, one for large and one for smaller dogs. There are park benches, fire hydrants and "mutt mitts" in the area. The project was completed at the cost of $50,000. "We are very pleased to have the dog park area up and running" advised Clovis Mayor Gayla Brumfield Thursday. "It is a wonderful addition to our parks system".
"I think the dog park is a great place for people to get out and exercise their pet, especially the large dogs who have a lot of energy. I am really impressed with the amount of thought and planning that went into its design and construction", advised Linda Cross of the High Plains Humane Society.
"The dog park is a great place for pet owners to take their dogs for exercise and socialization" advised Clovis veterinarian Dr. David Hudson Thursday. "As a veterinarian I am concerned about their safety. There is plenty of shade and level terrain for them to play on. The city has established a set of rules for users of the park and if followed should provide a safe and fun environment for our pets."
