K-9 Cody Park opens to plenty of “A-Paws”
HAVRE DE GRACE – The Havre de Grace Activity Center at 100 Lagaret Lane went to the dogs this weekend. Not the community center itself, rather the half-acre fenced area behind the Activity Center where a soft opening was held for the K-9 Cody Dog Park.
The dog park features a fenced in area for both small dogs and large dogs, for safety. It also offers a water drinking fountain for both bipeds and quadrupeds, after dogs work up a thirst romping with new found canine friends.
“Havre de Grace residents who knew we were actively working on installing a dog park were eager to bring their pets to the park so we decided to open it early dawn to dusk,” explained Havre de Grace Mayor William T. “Bill” Martin. An official opening with ribbon cutting ceremony and activities is being planned for Saturday, October 1, with additional information to be announced as the opening date draws closer.
Despite the goal of adding more amenities in future, the fenced in area where dogs can run and play off leash was a wild success attracting visitors to the park from throughout Havre de Grace, Harford County, and even a couple who drove to Havre de Grace from Howard County for First Friday and stayed, with their pet, to visit Cody Park the next day.
