Favorites emerge for dog park name

March 20, 2013

Out of more than 200 entries in the city of Granbury’s contest to name its soon-to-open dog park, the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board recently selected its top three favorites.

At its regular meeting last night, the City Council was to select the winning name from that list.

The three finalists were: Granbury Bark Park; Ruff Day Dog Park; and Paws to Remember Dog Park.

The City Council met after the HCN went to press. Check the paper’s website, www.hcnews.com, to find out which name was ultimately selected.

The contest to name the dog park ran from early February through March 8. The Parks Board culled through the submissions to create a Top 10 list, then whittled that list down to three.

The City Council last night was to not only vote on the winning name, but to also reveal the name of the person who submitted the entry. That person will be invited to be part of the grand opening for the dog park, scheduled for Saturday, April 20.

Located by the ballfields near Moore Street, the dog park will have separate, fenced areas for large and small dogs. Amenities include benches, picnic tables, water for dogs as well as their owners, obstacles to facilitate play and exercise and doggy “restrooms” that look like fire hydrants.
