Exploration and open play was the main activity for the dozens of dogs that attended with treats for humans too. The Spring grand opening was held at DeFilippo Playground on Saturday, April 28th. RUFF North End President Leslie Horn said,
“It has been a long road but we finally reached the finish line. Thank you to everyone that contributed and worked so hard to bring the North End a top-of-the-line community dog park.”
The gated park features separated areas for small and large dogs, jumps, tunnels, decking along with lush artificial grass, water features such as misting fire hydrants. Sprinkers are now working to give regular wash downs of the dog park.
