New Dog Park Planning Underway for Construction at O.K. Ward Park

The Friends of the Pocatello Animal Shelter and the City of Pocatello are working together to construct a dog park at the southern end of O.K. Ward Park. This will be a community facility where dogs and their owners can run and play.

It will feature two separate play areas with one meant for large, active, and energetic dogs; and the other for smaller dogs or those that play more leisurely. Other amenities will eventually include dog waste bags and repository stations, water fountains, benches, and a shade pergola. The entire park will be fenced so that dogs are free to run off leash.
