My Town GR West: Dog park grand opening set for May 17

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.— Tails will be wagging next month as Grand Rapids’ second dog park marks its official grand opening.

City leaders will celebrate the grand opening of Covell Dog Park at noon on May 17.  The green space is located at the corner of Bridge and Covell, behind Union High School.  The property was once occupied by tennis courts, which the city eventually replaced with grass.  It left the high fences, making the parcel a perfect spot for a dog park.

Before the grand opening, organizers plan to build a shelter inside the park, create a message board kiosk and install a water hook up for thirsty dogs as well as a park sign.
