Colorado Springs, CO, Tuesday, August 21, 2012 – The El Paso County Parks Department will host an open house to solicit input on future projects at Bear Creek Dog Park from 6 to 8 p.m., on Thursday, August 30. The proposed projects include the installation of a dog agility course and a dog art memorial. The public is encouraged to attend and provide input on these proposals.
The open house will be held in the Creekside Room at the El Paso County Parks Department, which is located at 2002 Creek Crossing across 21st street from the entrance to the Bear Creek Dog Park.
In April, Bear Creek Dog Park completed renovation which included restroom facilities, utilities connections to supply year around water for dog fountain and dog wash facilities, paved parking lot, temporary holding kennels, fencing, and critical bank stabilization work along Bear Creek. A grant from Great Outdoors Colorado provided a majority of the funding for these improvements while ongoing support from dedicated volunteers is critical in cleaning and maintaining this heavily used facility for the benefit of El Paso County residents.
