Pets and their owners attended a special event, Bark for Your Park in Stevenson Park Sept. 16, from 6 – 8 p.m.

The pet friendly event was sponsored by the City of Friendswood and PetSafe®, a Tennessee-based company that develops pet lifestyle products.

PetSafe® representatives presented a check at the evening event for $25,000 to the City of Friendswood to help fund the new dog park project which is also an Eagle Scout project for FHS student and scout Caden Fischer.
The dog park will be located in Old City Park. Earlier this year, Stevenson Park and Old City Park were linked by new trails and a bridge over Cowards Creek.

During the Friday night event, there was a ribbon-cutting at the new bridge.

A concert from ‘80s band Velvet Punch, pet portraits, food trucks, and door prizes were also part of the evening.
