Official Opening of La Vergne Dog Park Planned – Don’t Forget the Upcoming Clear the Shelters Event at Rutherford Co. PAWS

(La Vergne, Tenn.) The town of La Vergne is planning a grand opening and ribbon cutting for the new dog park later this month.

The event is scheduled for 9:00 a.m. on Saturday August 27 at the dog park, located at 377 Stones River Road. The community is invited to come out and be part of the grand opening once the ribbon is cut. There will be light refreshments and giveaways.

“We are thrilled to finally be able to open the dog park to residents and their pets,” said parks manager David McGowen. “COVID-19 has caused a lot of delays for this project, but we are finally here and excited to be able to open another park for our community.”

There are two separate dog parks, one for small dogs and another for large breeds over 30 pounds. There are also water fountains and benches. The Boyd Foundation should be present with city officials. In 2019, the City received $25,000 through the Dog Park Dash grant program.
