WAKEFIELD — The Town of Wakefield would like to welcome the canine public and their human companions to the grand re-opening of the Wakefield Dog Park located at 667 Main St. on Saturday, September 23, at 12 noon.

There will be a ribbon cutting as well as light refreshments. The park has recently undergone a renovation to include dog and human friendly water stations, benches and friendlier turf.

“We are excited to see this park become a reality for Wakefield Citizens” said Selectman Peter May.

The park was initially created in the Fall of 2016 and has undergone several upgrades and feature enhancements since opening as resident feedback came in.

With increased usage, positive feedback and help from the Department of Public Works, we were able to resurface the entire park and make it an even better resource for our canine public and their human companions.

“This is a great example of resident feedback being put into action” said Town Administrator Stephen Maio.

The ribbon cutting will happen at 12 noon sharp. Gone to the Dogs pet supply store of Albion Street will be at the event handing out doggie treats and information.
