Following the success of last Saturday’s “Doggy Splash” event at the Port Royal Park splash pad, the Spring Hill Parks & Recreation Department now aims to build a splash pad just for the dogs at the city’s Evans Park dog park.
Pet Pals of Maury County has pledged $5,000 to go to the new water feature at Spring Hill’s “Bark Park,” and Sonja Rine, recreation manager for the parks department, said the department hopes to double that amount with fundraising and contributions.
As a result of the Doggy Splash event last Saturday, which SERVPRO of Williamson and Maury counties and Pet Pals helped to put on, $371 was raised for the new splash pad.
The proposed expansion of Evans Park, for which preliminary plans were revealed last month, calls for the dog park to be almost tripled in size.
According to Rine, construction of a splash pad for dogs will likely need to coincide with construction of the overall expansion of Evans Park, as both water and power will be needed for the installation. More information on the Evans Park expansion can be found online here.
