At 10 am on Saturday, August 10th, people gathered for the official re-opening of the Broad Ripple Park Bark Park. Mayor Hogsett was on hand to cut the ribbon to celebrate the upgraded facility.
The dog park, which first opened in 1999 as the city's first dog park, has undergone a major makeover and now features an artificial turf infield, a large hexagon shelter, a new drinking fountain, and a dog wash station. Three Dog Bakery also offered free treats during the open house.
Each year, Broad Ripple Park serves more than 300,000 people including 1,500 dog park customers. Most recently, the park celebrated its Beneful Dog Park contest award, which was used to place new benches and agility equipment in the bark park.
