Swift Cur­rent Dog Park gear­ing up for Aug. 3 open house

The Southwest Booster - - NEWS -

The Swift Cur­rent Dog Park Com­mit­tee is invit­ing the pub­lic to at­tend an Open House event at the Park on Au­gust 3.

The Dog Park has made amaz­ing progress over the past two years, turn­ing from a con- cept 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 ap- proved 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.

Open House events on Aug. 3 run from 2- 5 p. m., with free doggie bags to the first 20 dogs to at­tend.

The for­mal pro­gram por­tion of the af­ter­noon starts at 2: 30 p. m., with an RCMP Ca­nine demon­stra­tion.

There will also be 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 Mon., Aug. 4 has been set.
