The Dog Park, located at 250 Charles Austin Drive, will close for renovations Monday, Aug. 27.

The Parks and Recreation Department will open a temporary dog park at the corner of C.M. Allen and Cheatham St. on the softball field at Ramon Lucio Park.

The Dog Park renovation project is expected to take 60 days and was approved by City Council. It will use Community Development Block Grant funds to expand the dog play areas, install ADA accessible routes, and install additional shade structures and water fountains.

The expansion will include two large dog play areas and two small dog play areas, which will promote grass growth and give the city staff the ability to perform regular maintenance without disrupting park usage.
