Perry Hall set to greet start of dog park project at Honeygo

County officials and pet advocates from the Perry Hall area will take part in a ceremony Tuesday marking the start of construction at the Perry Paw Dog Park.

The park is a $205,000 project at Honeygo Regional Park in Perry Hall, and will include a .34-acre area for small dogs and a 1.06-acre area for larger breeds.

The park will feature a key card entry system for members, water fountains for dogs and other amenities.

The park will be operated by the Perry Paw Dog Park Committee, which will set operating rules and regulations, coordinate paid membership and oversee the operations of the park. This group raised $20,000 in funds to contribute toward construction of the dog park.

On Tuesday at 11 a.m., members of the Perry Hall Recreation Council, dog park committee members and local dogs and dog owners will gather at the park, 9033 Honeygo Blvd., for a brief ceremony.

County Executive Kevin Kamenetz and other county officials will also attend.
