Join the City of Burleson for an outdoor community event from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on March 19 to celebrate the newly built dog park's grand opening and ribbon cutting, 620 Memorial Plaza. The free event will include a DJ, a photo booth, park tours, toys and treats compliments of Burleson Animal Shelter.
The 39,670 square-foot dog park features three dog yards, a dog wash station, a dog agility course and a parking lot.
"There has been a longstanding vision from a dedicated group of individuals in our community for the creation of a dog park in Burleson," said Mayor Chris Fletcher. "I want to thank our community, Parks and Recreation Board and my fellow city council members who worked for years on this project. We are extremely proud to open this brand new space where our community can gather."
After years of research and location scouting, the final location for the dog park was selected, and design began in March of 2021. Construction kicked off in November of 2021. The dog park will be open to the public on February 26, with the shade shelter being installed later this spring.
