ANDERSON TWP. - The Anderson Township Park District board has agreed to unleash funds for a dog park, which should be ready for two- and four-legged visitors by the fall.
Park District Executive Director Molly McClure said the board agreed to move forward with the park and will provide the money needed to get it started while a resident committee continues to raise additional funds.
The dog park will cost about $12,000 for start-up, with another $12,000 needed to purchase extras such as benches and picnic tables. Anderson Township owns 342 acres of land in its eight parks.
The off-leash area will take up about four acres in Kellogg Park near Riverbend, officials said.
To help the park district's Dog Park Committee raise money or to get more information, call 474-0003 ext. 5083. Or check the park district's Web site, www.andersonparks.org.
