New dog park in north Forsyth County now open
Forsyth County officials, staff and guests gathered Tuesday, Nov. 17, to officially open the Coal Mountain Dog Park (4060 County Way). The new park is located across from the County Animal Shelter in north Forsyth.
“I look forward to seeing the special family bonds this park will help create for generations to come,” said District 4 Commissioner Cindy Jones Mills. “We hope that being so close to the shelter will encourage our community to embrace and adopt animals who still need a home.”
The park features synthetic dog turf, dog water fountains, climbing boulder, wooded areas, dog walk ramp, tunnel, sunshades, shaded benches and two family-style restrooms. The four-acre dog park is funded by donations, the Parks & Recreation Capital Funds and by SPLOST VIII.
