BENNINGTON — With thanks to those people responsible and the simultaneous cutting of a blue ribbon by a dozen or so pairs of scissors, the new Bennington Doggy Park at Willow Park was declared open up on Saturday.
The park is “our community treasure, and a single that we and our canine companions will love for years to come,” claimed Susan Armstrong, one of the project’s a few founders, in quick remarks prior to the ribbon-slicing.
Development of the park was funded by way of $25,000 in personal donations. The town obtained bids on building the chain-connection fence, the project’s key price tag, and provided the area, a tree-shaded fifty percent-acre near Willow Park’s volleyball courts. The new park is seen from Park Street.
