Sweet Grandpa makes a friend
Saturday’s Summerfest in Central Community Dog Park was a howling success! Crowds gathered to enjoy music and a hot dog lunch while visiting with other “dog people” as their canine family members ran and played in the one-acre, off-leash dog park.
Dogs had the opportunity for some free sprucing at the nail trim tent or at the dog bath station. An impressive bake sale featured delicious treats like home-baked bread, caramel brownie and iced cookies shaped like dog bones.
Marleigh’s Friends, a newly formed rescue was on hand with several adoptable dogs, looking for a fur-ever home. Nutmeg showed off his beautiful red coat, Grandpa, his white beard and Dickens sported a sign that read “adopt me.” If you are looking for a new pet to fill your life with more love than you believed possible, contact Jennifer Lewis at Marleighsfriends@gmail.com.
The dog park is a rustic park, shaded by mature live oaks that was opened 13 years ago to welcome the community to the grounds of Central Christian Church. It is located at 4711 Westside Dr. in the Park Cities, just behind the church. There is plenty of parking and plenty of seating.
Visit the website, www.cccdt.org, to find out what is happening at the dog park and the many activities at Central. Summer drama camp for kids is coming up, Westside Wellness is holding yoga and wellness classes and there are always opportunities for volunteering within the community.
