The Grand Opening Celebration will be held at the newly opened dog run, which is located behind the tennis courts at the park. The park has been built using $10,000 in funds raised by the Louisville Dog Run Association (LDRA), $10,000 in Neighborhood Development Funds from the Offices of Councilman Benson and Engel and $24,000 the Metro Parks Department for concrete at the park.
