Is there anything thing better than watching two or three kids playing with their dog at a local dog park?

According to WILX:

A new dog park is giving Jackson residents something to be excited about.  Residents and their four-legged furry companions are invited to celebrate the start of construction at Betty's Dog Park with a groundbreaking event on Friday, April 23 at 11:30 a.m.

What makes this very cool is the fact that this will be Jackson's first ever dog park.  You can find the park at the corner of N. Blackstone and Van Buren streets.  (WILX)

This should make dog lovers very happy down in the Jackson area.  They will have it fenced off in certain areas to separate the big dogs from the small dogs.

If you want to enjoy a family picnic at the dog park, they will have plenty of picnic tables and benches. So while you're relaxing and enjoying lunch, your furry friend can be running around getting lots of exercise.

For the groundbreaking event on Friday, WILX adds:

Jackson residents and their pets are welcome to attend the event, which will feature words from City officials and a groundbreaking.  Attendees are asked to please wear face coverings and social distance.  Dogs on leashes are welcome to attend.  The event will also be live streamed on the City Facebook page so residents can safely participate from home.

With so many people moving into apartments in downtown Jackson, this first ever dog park will be the perfect place to take their pets and have a little fun!
