Forsyth County officials, staff and guests gathered
Thursday, June 25, to break ground for the County’s new dog park located across
from the County Animal Shelter (4065 County Way) in north Forsyth just off SR
400. Once complete, the park will feature synthetic dog turf, dog water
fountains, climbing boulder, wooded areas, dog walk ramp, tunnel, sunshades,
shaded benches and two family-style restrooms. SEE IMAGES FROM THE EVENT BY CLICKING HERE.
During the groundbreaking ceremony, County Commission
Chairman Laura Semanson, District 4 Commissioner Cindy Jones Mills and Animal
Shelter Director Cindy Iacopella thanked those who made the funding for the new
park a reality. The four-acre dog park is funded by donations, the Parks &
Recreation Capital Funds and primarily with SPLOST VIII funds, the additional
penny sales tax.
The park is slated for completion in fall 2020.
