“Dog owners have wanted, and needed, a larger place to take their dogs to run around in our community,” said Meridian Parks Superintendent Mike Barton on one of the city’s blogs. “We are happy we’ve finally found the perfect location to make that happen.”

The park, which is in the design phase, will include shelters, agility equipment and doggie drinking fountains.

The Meridian Police Department’s K9 training area will be closed to dog owners and their pets starting Jan. 2, when construction starts on the new Public Safety Training Center. Through the end of March, designated areas in Julius M. Kleiner Memorial Park will be available for dogs to about untethered.
