Grand opening festivities for Dog Park in Tahoe City

Special to the Sun

TAHOE CITY, Calif. and#8212; Attention dog lovers! Beginning June 16, thereand#8217;s a new place in town to take your dog: the Tahoe City Dog Park. The Humane Society of Truckee-Tahoe, Contractors Association of Truckee Tahoe, Kiwanis Club of North Lake Tahoe, local community members and the Tahoe City PUD teamed up to create a safe, fun, contained place for dogs to exercise and socialize in Tahoe City. This leash-free zone is another positive outcome from local partnerships and was made possible entirely through private and nonprofit funding.

Locals and visitors alike will enjoy this leash-free park in Tahoe City to take their dog. The dog park is conveniently located just off Highway 28 on Grove Street (behind Fat Cat and below Conners Field). The dog park will be open daily dawn to dusk, excluding Wednesdays. (Wednesdays the dog park will be open noon to dusk.) Please follow the dog park rules and dog park etiquette posted at the park.

To kick off the new park, Tahoe City PUD will host a Grand Opening event Thursday, June 16, 5 p.m. The family friendly event includes a dog parade through Tahoe City, a dress up your dog contest and official ribbon cutting. Meet at Grove Street, in front of the dog park at 5 p.m. to join the parade fun. Once the dog park festivities conclude, everyone is encouraged to take a stroll down Tahoe City and enjoy the Annual Solstice Stroll Classic Car Show presented by the Kiwanis Club of North Lake Tahoe Enjoy live music and vote for your favorite car while you stroll the main drag in Tahoe City.
