La Vergne, Tenn. - The City of La Vergne is planning on a grand opening and ribbon cutting for the new dog park later this month.
The event is scheduled for 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, August 27 at the dog park, located at 377 Stones River Road. The community is invited to come out and be a part of the grand opening once the ribbon has been cut. There will be light refreshments and giveaways.
“We’re excited to finally be able to open the dog park to residents and their pets,” says Parks Director David McGowen. “COVID-19 has caused a lot of delays for this project but we’re finally here and excited to be able to open another park for our community.”
There are two separate dog parks, one for smaller dogs and another for larger breeds over 30 lbs. There are also water fountains and benches. The Boyd Foundation is expected to be in attendance along with city officials. In 2019, the City was awarded $25,000 as part of the Dog Park Dash grant program.
