A new dog park has opened in Decatur and locals are loving it.
The new doggy play areas are fenced in and give pets plenty of space to run around. City Park Officials say the work isn’t done yet and plan to add more benches and features to the parks soon.
Decatur residents say it’s a great addition for those who have trouble finding a secure place to take their pets, let them off the leash, and burn off some energy.
We ran into Anita Long, who was visiting the park with her dog, Luna. She says, “6:30 or 7:00, since it’s so hot, the sun starts to go down, people start coming out. There’ll be about 15 to 20 dogs here every day just running wild, having a good time. It’s awesome just to sit and watch, it’s great.”
There are two seperate parks for large and small breed dogs.
The new park is located at Wilson Morgan Parks near Decatur Animal Services.
