The last leg of the park has yet to be completed and needs community help through donations and volunteer work to finish a place that both dogs and humans alike will enjoy. There will be a costume contest ($2 entry fee), raffle prizes, and fall photo shoots for you and your furry friends to ensure your donations are put to good use. The Greenwood Parks and Trails Foundation will also have special deals on embroidered hats, water bottles, hats, and engraved bricks for sale to raise funds for the dog park.

Make sure you go out and support your local community parks by attending this event and enjoy the surprisingly warm fall weather while it last.
