Jeanette Cook, Chair of the Park and Recreation Advisory
Board said, “We are pleased to bring the Bark Park to Bedford.
Thanks to the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board
members for all their hard work on this project and a huge
thanks to the City Council members who approved our plan.”
“I am excited that the City of Bedford is finally able to create
a dog park for the residents. This fulfills a long term goal of
our Park and Recreation Advisory Board and provides a safe
and inviting place to exercise your dog. I am also very
grateful to the HEB ISD for their continued partnership with
the City of Bedford in creating this new dog park,” said Bedford
Mayor Jim Griffin.
Generous donations have been made by the Brown Trail Animal
Hospital, My Credit Union, and the friends of the Phodographer. There is
plenty of opportunity to donate and corporate sponsorships
are still available. Small donations can also be made through the City of Bedford's new donations page.
