A dog park may seem like a small thing to people who already have one. For dog owners who don’t have access to one, it can be a much bigger thing. Birmingham Mayor Larry Langford just announced that a new dog park will open next week. Work on the park has already started, and seems only held back by the easy availabilty of some materials.

I’m not a dog owner- but I am very happy to see that this is on the way. Many weekends I sit and read in a local park where people bring out their dogs. Many times, I’ve seen dogs run off- and sometimes nearly get run over. Having a nice fenced in area where dogs can run free will be a fabulous thing for Birmingham.
