FRAMINGHAM – FramBark announced today the Dog Park Days of Summer grand opening celebration of the City of Framingham’s first-ever dog park.
The celebration will be on Saturday, July 16 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The City of Framingham broke ground on its first-ever dog park in February.
Framingham Parks & Recreation is constructing about a 24,000 square foot dog park at Farm Pond Park adjacent to the City’s first-ever skate park.
The park will have a space for both small and large dogs, near Loring Arena and Barbieri Elementary School, off Dudley Road.
The dog park is the brainchild of the community organization FramBark, founded by Shannon Stevens.
A majority of the park project is funded through a grant by the Stanton Foundation.
The City received a design grant of about $25,000 and another construction grant of about $225,000. The two grants cover about 90% of the cost of the new park. The total cost of the project is about $262,000.
