The City of Broken Arrow will cut the ribbon on the Rose West Dog Park, the City’s first dog park, at 10 a.m., Friday, May 4. Dogs and their owners are invited to attend.
The park features 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 existing parking lot was also expanded by 25 spaces, more than double the 18 that existed previously.
The restrooms and water fountains will also be open to cyclists and joggers who frequently use the adjoining Liberty Park Trail.
Funded by the 2014 General Obligation Bond, construction of the park, restrooms and parking lot 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.
Rules for the dog park have been established to correspond with the rules in neighboring communities’ dog parks.
