New dog park opens in Woonsocket
WOONSOCKET, R.I. (WLNE) — A new dog park has opened in Woonsocket.
A ribbon cutting ceremony was held Thursday at the Rivers Edge Recreation Complex. Mayor Lisa Baldelli-Hunt was in attendance with her rescue dog, Vita.
The dog park has two separate fenced-in areas — one for small dogs and another for big dogs. It also has a gated enclosure to stop puppies from wandering off.
“Dog parks are a great place for people to gather socially in the fresh air where they can talk amongst each other and make new friends, all while watching their canine ‘best friends’ have fun and get exercise,” said the mayor.
