Volunteers and sponsors are needed for the planned local dog park to be built in Old City Park on Merriewood Drive in Friendswood.
The park is part of a planned Eagle Scout project by Caden Fischer of Friendswood Boy Scout Troop 442.
Fischer has received approval to build the park but now needs community help to collect funds and materials to get the job completed.
The Friendswood Dog Park will have an area for large dogs and another area for small dogs with each area featuring a double gate entrance. With approximately 33,000 square feet, the park will have trees, benches, human and dog water fountains, and a dog wash station.
Once funding is secured the dog park will set to open within 6-12 months. After completion, the City of Friendswood will maintain the dog park.
Community work days will be scheduled in the future by Fischer and Scout workers. Work tasks being planned include demolition of the existing fence in the area, building and installing benches and placing and grading soil over the culvert.
Anyone having useful materials or tools that they would like to donate to the project, contact Fischer at [email protected]
