The Oak Ridge Dog Park Committee and Recreation and Parks Advisory Board have scheduled an open house this month to share information on the progress of the dog park, as well as give the public an opportunity to comment or share concerns.
The meeting will be at 6 p.m. Thursday, March 21, in the Oak Ridge Civic Center.
“Please plan to attend this meeting,” a press release said. “We will soon have an opportunity to have a safe place for our dogs to exercise.”
Radio Systems Corp. has agreed to give Oak Ridge $100,000 to help build a dog park at Big Turtle Park on the west end of the city. Radio Systems Corp. is the maker of the PetSafe Brand.
The Dog Park Committee earlier drafted two possible designs for the dog park.
In October, Oak Ridge Recreation and Parks Department Director Josh Collins said money was the primary obstacle to building the dog park, a project that’s been in the works for about four to five years.
