Construction Begins for Hagan Dog Park
Three weeks from now, Rancho Cordova could be the proud owner of a brand-new dog park located in Hagan Park.
Contruction crews have broken ground this week to start the process of converting an area of Hagan Park into a dog paradise, and despite the rainy weather, Gone to the Dogs Committee Member Brian Fansler said in an email that the construction manager for the project is estimating work will be completed in three weeks. The dog park will be approximately two acres when completed and will include areas for both large and small dogs.
A Rancho Cordova dog park has been years in the making, and in October the Cordova Recreation and Park District approved a plan to include one at Hagan Park. Gone to the Dogs has championed the cause of bringing a dog park to the area and has even participated in holding dog-related events in the city, such as Wet ‘n Woofy in 2007 and Winter Woof Fest in December.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony and grand opening event is tentatively scheduled for late spring, but the dog park will be open for enjoyment before then. Potential events for the grand opening include pet games and demonstrations, agility contests and plenty of vendors. The Gone to the Dogs committee’s next meeting will be Feb. 16 at 6 p.m. at 2197 Chase Drive, and they will be discussing the opening event.
