The Bryan County Bark Park is one step closer to becoming a reality, now that land clearing has begun.
Members of the Richmond Hill High School Interact Club, along with friends and family, spent a recent Saturday helping prepare the land in Henderson Park for phase one of building.
The Interact Club is an outreach of the Rotary Club of Richmond Hill.
“This incredible group of students worked so hard during their recent work day at Henderson Park, and we really appreciate all they did,” said Wendy Bolton, president of the Bryan County Bark Park. “After the heavy machinery cleared the 1.5 acres, there was still a great deal of work to do.
“Thanks to the Interact Club and the continued support of our community, we are making progress with the opening of phase one of the county’s first dog park. Plans for layout of the Bark Park are currently being developed. We hope to complete the site work and begin building very soon.”
Updates on progress will be available at the monthly Fundraising Yappy Hour from 6-8 p.m. Thursday at Fish Tales Restaurant at Fort McAllister Marina. The money raised supports the Bryan County Bark Park fundraising campaign, a nonprofit organization obtaining 501(c) 3 status.
