The community of Mitchell went to the dogs this past weekend, as the Carol A. Fuller Charity Foundation Dog Park had its’ grand opening Halloween day.
The new fenced-in park on 13th Street just east of the Scotts Bluff County Fairgrounds featuring more than 20 amenities that make it one of the most-modern in the region and across the state.
Supporter Becky Morgheim tells KNEB News the park opened with rave reviews. “They like that there’s different areas for different-sized dogs, how it’s set up with park benches and tables,” said Morgheim. “They also like the walkway around the park, that it’s nice and cemented-in, and wide enough for wheelchairs and other things.”
The park is open daily from 8 a.m. until 10 p.m., but some amenities and final touches to the facility won’t be available or completed until next spring when warmer weather returns.
