Springfield's First Dog Park

Springfield's First Dog Park

Springfield is getting its first dog park.

You can't take your dog here yet, but progress is being made on the four-acre park. The park was just seeded with a special "self-healing" turf.

It will have an area for large breed dogs and one for small breeds.

Willamalane staff hope the park will be ready by next May. By that time, the grass will be just perfect for your furry friends and the rest of the park should be complete.

It's located behind the Splash Lively Swim Center, off Thurston Road.
