Construction for Dusty Rhodes Dog Park enlargement is scheduled to begin the end of August. The curb will be cut in the Sunset Cliffs Parking Lot to provide handicap accessibility. Chain link fencing will run from the equipment gate to the public restrooms, enlarging the leash-free area by about 30 percent.
This will provide an opportunity to allow a third of the park to be closed for six week periods to promote the growth of turf. The additional space gained through the expansion will further allow a special, fenced-off small dog and puppy area reserved for more sedate and refined canines.
Rowdy dogs will have the same amount of sun and shade to romp in.
