"This is wonderful, this is terrific, this is so great!" were phrases that could be heard repeatedly Friday evening at the official opening of McKinney's dog park. McKinney's four-legged residents barked their apparent approval.
Despite what felt like a return to winter weather, numerous McKinney residents and their furry friends came out to check out the new park, which is located at 3050 Virginia Parkway, at the northeast corner of Hardin Boulevard and Virginia Parkway.
Mayor Brian Loughmiller, Mayor Pro-Tem Travis Ussery and Councilmembers Ray Ricchi and Roger Harris were on hand to help celebrate the park opening and visit with residents.
Loughmiller thanked everyone for coming out to the opening ceremony and said "the turnout was even better than he expected."
Councilman Ricchi said, "This (the park) is fantastic."
The dog park space features mulch instead of grass, great lighting, a splash park for dogs and approximately two acres for dogs to run and play. Trees offer shade throughout the park. There are separate gates for small dogs and large dogs to enter the park area. The park will be open until 11 p.m. each night.
McKinney residents Alex and Lynn Heppner said, "This is great. We have been walking on the trail and now it will be great to walk the trail and come here (with our dogs)." The Heppner's said they had been taking their two dogs to the dog park in Allen.
The dog park is part of the first phase of the Bonnie Wenk Park also includes 1.2 miles of concrete trails, restrooms, amphitheater and parking. The remainder of the park, which will encompass 4 1/2 acres, is slated to be completed and open in late June.
Anyone else make it to the park this evening? Your thoughts? Share any pics you may have.
Per the McKinney TSB posting;
McKinney’s new 2-acre dog park is set to open at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, March 22. The park is located at the new Bonnie Wenk Park (3050 Virginia Parkway). Mayor Brian Loughmiller will be on hand to conduct a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
The park will stay open on Friday night until 11:00 p.m. and then re-open Saturday at dawn.
Because the rest of the park is still under construction, there are currently 48 parking spots at Bonnie Wenk Park. If the onsite parking spots are full, city officials encourage ceremony attendees use the alternate parking locations designated by the city.
The off-site alternate parking locations are:
Al Ruschhaupt Park (2701 Northbrook Drive) - Access the trail and walk on the hike and bike trail North to the dog park
Cockrill Middle School (1351 N. Hardin Road) - Access the hike and bike trail and walk South into the park.
One day and counting....
