The $500,000 renovation creates a dog park with many unique features that include: custom-designed water splash pads to keep dogs cool during hot Alabama summers; a fetch football field with fire hydrant goal posts; a hill that dogs and owners can climb together to enjoy the view; a doggie wash station; and an adventure path with tunnels and agility hoops.
