Have you visited the community dog park at Central Christian Church lately? If you have you’ve already had an opportunity to enjoy the “spring sprucing” that has taken place to make the park even more special.

Dog park advocate Stephen Mies has made a difference in the appearance of the park by having bushes trimmed and thinned allowing them to show off their green beauty and to prevent standing water.   The grounds have been cleared of any debris and colorful flowers have been planted.

Central’s dog park is a charming park with plenty of seating, shade and room for your dog to play off-leash.  It is just one of the many ways that Central lovingly reaches out to the community.

I visited with Mies and asked him about the clean-up project that he orchestrated.

Mies’ partner passed away last July of pancreatic cancer. 

“Jimmy loved spending time in the dog park with our Rottweiler, Lexi.  I did it to honor his memory and so that our ‘big girl’ continues to have a nice place to play,” Mies said. 

Walking around the freshly spruced park I was reminded of one of my favorite dog quotes: ““Dogs are our link to paradise. They don't know evil or jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring--it was peace.”
? Milan Kundera

Central’s dog park is open to the community from sun-up to sunset.  It is located just behind the church at 4711 Westside Drive off Mockingbird Lane.

Besides plenty of seating in the dog park, there is plenty of seating in the sanctuary if you would like to visit the church.  Morning worship is at 11 a.m.  The Central congregation would welcome you.
