Crookston Dog Park Making Progress

A dog park in Crookston is coming closer to completion.

A dog park in Crookston is coming closer to completion.

A group started Bark For The Park about a year ago to raise funds for the dog park.

Since then, they have raised over $20,000.

The site has been leveled. Trees, a water line, and a hydrant have been installed. Sod will be put in this weekend.

"We did a lot of research and tried to find the best practices and these really are people parks too. You know, people really do come and they like to talk about their dogs and just kind of catch up and have a good time while their dogs are having a good time," City of Crookston Administrator Aaron Parrish said.

The dog park still needs benches, tunnels, picnic tables, and fencing. The park should be open by the end of August.
