The City of Broken Arrow will break ground on the Rose West Dog Park, the City’s first dog park, at 10 a.m., Tuesday, Oct. 10. Leashed dogs and their owners are welcome to attend the groundbreaking.
The park will feature two separate, fenced play areas, one for large and one for small dogs; a transition area so dogs’ reactions can be judged before letting them into the play areas; a restroom facility and water fountains for both humans and canines. Shade structures will be added in the future.
The restrooms and water fountains will also be open to cyclists and joggers using the adjoining Liberty Park Trail.
Funded by the 2014 General Obligation Bond, construction of the park will cost $473,000. The five acres of land for the park was donated by Joan and Monte Dunham in October 2011 with the request that the park be named after Rose West, the former owner of the property who enjoyed the wildflowers that grow there.
The park is expected to be completed in the spring of 2018.
