Residents and their four-legged canine friends will have a dog park to visit this fall.
The Coppell City Council voted unanimously on May 14 to approve a $288,984 contract with HQS Construction to build the long-awaited dog park.
Construction at the MacArthur Park could take up to 100 days and a grand opening will be scheduled in the fall when the dog park opens, according to Brad Reid, director of parks and recreation.
“We’ve been talking about this dog park for a lot of years,” Reid said. “We’ve had a number of groups approach us and staff to request this item for a number of years.”
