Cameron Dog Park grand opening
On Saturday June 23 the Cameron Dog Park at Beaver Park had the official grand opening and ribbon cutting. During the event, there were hot dogs, chips, drinks, and plenty of events for the kids – including face painting, a bean bag toss with prizes, and a photo booth.
There were activities for the dogs as well which included getting a mold of their paw print taken for the owners to take home as a souvenir, having their paw print turned into a picture, a photo booth for dogs and their owners and a dog show.
The dog park is a project that has been in the works by the Cameron Park Board for over a year and has had many contributions from private citizens for the amenities at the park as well as the Park Board.
