Paducah Dog Park Grand opening: August, 2012. From website: "The Paducah Dog Park has water, fencing, shelters, gravel parking, and pet waste receptacles. The park is partitioned into two sections based upon the weight of a dog with 30 pounds as the dividing weight. Each fenced section has a water spigot that has a motion sensor on it to detect when a dog is near. Near the entrance of each fenced area is a green box with "Mutt Mitts", degradable bags to allow the easy collection of your dog's excrement. Each fenced area also has a large shelter so that owners can sit and chat while the pooches play and romp. The fencing is coated with black vinyl to keep it looking new for years. In the future, the dog park could have amenities such as dog agility obstacles." Note: Dog park is on right as you enter the park; road is one-way. See Details
