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