Grand opening for Harrison County Dog Park

If you live in Harrison County, grab your dogs because you now have a brand-new dog park to enjoy.

The county held a grand opening for its new four-acre puppy paradise. The park is located at the back of the Harrison County Fairgrounds.

You can enjoy what it has to offer now, but there are also plans to add some additional features in the future, things like an agility course, a splash pad, and even a bathing station.

The park is open from dawn to dusk and dogs must be leashed when entering and leaving the park. Harrison County District 2 Supervisor Rebecca Powers said, “This is your dog park Harrison County. Everything that happens here is with your tax dollars. That is so important for us to understand.”

Harrison County Fairgrounds Director Greg Whitfield said, “There’s a lot of people in Harrison County who have dogs, and we’re excited to be able to just give them a place where they can have their dogs kind of get off of a leash and just get all kinds of exercise and just have fun with their furry friends, and we’re excited about having it here.”

The four-acre dog park is now the largest one in the state.
