Park for people with pooches opens at Pendergast
July 4, 2008 · Updated 11:56 AM
After months of fundraising and planning its time to let the dogs out.
At 10 a.m. today, a section of Pendergast Park will be christened the temporary location for Bremertons Bark Park. A brief ceremony will be followed by refreshments.
One of the old ballfields has been fenced off and dogs will be able to run leash free, provided they and their owners abide by the rules. Dogs under four months old, that are in heat, display aggressive behavior or that are not licensed are not allowed in the off-leash area.
Dog owners must supervise their animals at all times and are liable for any misbehaving on the animals part. They must also clean up after Fifi or Fido and stop them from digging.
So far a group of volunteers has raised about $1,500 to establish the temporary site. The park is open from dawn until dusk.
