BASF DOG PARK UPDATE

The opening of the BASF Dog Park has had to be delayed until early fall (September/October) due to delays in construction. We have a few items to finish up including establishing a thick and healthy grass turf.  We are excited for the opening and are looking forward to seeing all the people and dogs enjoying the park, unfortunately we need the turf to be healthy and durable first.  Thank you for your patience.
