BALTIMORE (WBFF) -- Dog owners and lovers now have a new outdoor space for their pooches to enjoy in Central Baltimore.
On Saturday morning, the Howard Park Dog Park celebrated its grand opening on Center Street, between Eutaw and Howard Streets.
The park provides dog owners and their pets to have a safe place to play for small and large dogs. The 16,000 square feet of space includes dog drinking fountains, agility log, and synthetic turf mounds, fenced in dog runs with ADA accessible entrances, and two raingardens to filter and clean stormwater runoff.
City Bond and the Maryland Department of Natural Resources funded the park through the Chesapeake and Atlantic Coastal Bays Trust Fund for the bio retention component of the park.
Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake joined community members for the celebration.
