New park is for the dogs

As far as the city’s concerned, we have a dog park.

Boy Scout Travis Rohrbach of Troop 14, whose Eagle Scout project was designed to delight Wapakoneta’s four-legged residents and their two-legged companions, said Tuesday that the park is “functionally complete.”

“Everything is done, except for the water line that the city says they will install this week,” Rohrbach said, adding that the city has officially signed off on the project as complete.

Rohrbach had planned on planting trees before the official opening, but he has since found out that planting trees in the summer is not a good idea. The trees will have to wait until fall.

According to Rohrbach, the park, located just north of the intersection of West Auglaize Street and Herbstritt Court, covers about 2 acres. The facility is separated into a large dog area, a small dog area and an entryway. Features include a waste station and the future watering station.
