Swift Cur­rent Dog Park gear­ing up for Aug. 3 grand open­ing

The Southwest Booster - - NEWS -

Hours of vol­un­teer time and labour will be saluted on Aug. 3 when the Swift Cur­rent Dog Park cel­e­brates their of­fi­cial Grand Open­ing.

The Dog Park has made amaz­ing progress over the past two years, turn­ing from a con­cept idea into a us­able park space for dogs on Pat­ter­son Drive (east of Elm­wood Golf Course). Park or­ga­niz­ers are now hop­ing that a full park de­sign sub­mit­ted to the city will be ap­proved and then a new round of fundrais­ing can be­gin for var­i­ous park fea­tures that will make it a park where dogs will be glad to bring their own­ers.

Grand Open­ing events on Aug. 3 run from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., with free dog­gie bags to the first 20 dogs to at­tend. A for­mal rib­bon cut­ting cer­e­mony will be hosted at 2:30 p.m., fol­lowed by an RCMP Ca­nine demon­stra­tion, a re­veal of the pro­posed park de­sign,

draws for dog­gie re­lated bas­kets and items, a 50/50 draw, tours of the dog park. In case the Aug. 3 event is rained out, an al­ter­nate date of Mon­day Au­gust 4 has been set.
