Backers of the Bryan County Bark Park announced Tuesday the park will open in October during the nonprofit group's  celebration of National Dog Day at Fish Tales restaurant.

Bark Park board member Steve Myers, also a member of the Bryan County Commission, said the park will open no later than Oct. 25.

 “We are near to completion of the handicapped accessible walkway from the parking lot to the Bark Park,” Myers said. “Electricity cables have been run to the Bark Park and fencing will be erected for the small and large dog areas in September. We will open the park as early in October as possible but certainly by Oct. 25”

The Bark Park supported Bryan County Animal Control in the adoption of shelter animals on Aug. 26.

Laura McGee won the prize drawing for a goody basket as everybody who donated food or cash to purchase food for the shelter was entered into the raffle. $160 was raised as well as many donations of food for animals in need at the shelter.

The Bryan County Bark Park is a non-profit organization which has achieved 501(c) 3 status. Donations may be tax deductible. For more information go to or Facebook.
