The Moundridge Bark Park will have a soft opening on Friday, September 6th at 5:30 p.m. with a Chamber of Commerce ribbon cutting ceremony.

The new park fencing is up, city crews have installed two water hydrants, the benches have arrived and been assembled. Signs for the two areas of the park for big dogs and small dogs have arrived, but there are still more thing to do such as laying the donor bricks and installing the welcome sign and rules.

With Summer winding down, the Bark Park Committee wanted to get the park opened for the public to utilize this fall. Several play obstacles will be added as well as concrete pads for the benches and other features.
