County officials will cut the ribbon to mark the official opening of the new dog park at John Prince Park on Saturday, July 29 at 9:30 a.m.
Lake Woof Dog Park will feature five enclosed landscaped areas with designated areas for large to small dogs, all spanning more than four acres. The dog park will also include five gazebos with benches, drinking fountains, dog wash areas and doggie bag stations.
Other park improvements include six-foot-wide asphalt and concrete circular paths in each area, park benches and asphalt trails for bikers and pedestrians that connect to the rest of the park. In addition, 42 parking spaces and four ADA-accessible parking spaces will be added.
“John Prince Park is one of our largest regional parks,” said Parks and Recreation director Eric Call. “Adding a state-of-the-art dog park and other amenities is something residents and their four-legged friends have looked forward to for a long time.”
John Prince Park is in Lake Worth along Lake Osborne. Park hours are sunrise to sunset.
