Baltimore County officials and pet advocates from the Perry Hall area will take part in a ceremony Tuesday marking the start of construction at the Perry Paw Dog Park.
The park is a $205,000 improvement to Honeygo Regional Park in Perry Hall, and will include a .34-acre area for small dogs and a 1.06-acre area for larger breeds.
The park will feature a key card entry system for members, water fountains for dogs and other amenities.
The park will be operated by the Perry Paw Dog Park Committee, which will set operating rules and regulations, coordinate paid membership and oversee the operations of the park. This group raised $20,000 in funds to contribute toward construction of the dog park.
On Tuesday at 11 a.m., dog park committee members, representatives of the Perry Hall Recreation Council, and local dogs and dog owners will gather at the park, 9033 Honeygo Blvd., for a brief ceremony with County Executive Kevin Kamenetz and other county and state officials.Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
