RICHMOND HILL, GA – October 21, 2014 - The Bryan County Bark Park is delighted to announce its official opening and ribbon cutting at 2pm on Wednesday November 5th 2014 at the community’s new dog park near the ball fields in DeVaul Henderson Park

The community is invited to join members of the Bark Park board and Chamber of Commerce as County Commissioner Jimmy Burnsed performs the ribbon cutting ceremony.  Doggie shaped cookies specially created by Coastal Confections and donated by Lesley Francis PR will be served with lemonade and iced tea as the non-profit organization behind the Bark Park celebrates the official launch of the park on November 5th


The opening of Bryan County’s first dog park means that residents and their canine companions no longer have to travel over 20 miles to Savannah to enjoy a free to use off leash facility.  The Bark Park has taken two years from conception to completion thanks to the dedication of founding board members: Wendy Bolton – President, Jane Honnor – Vice President, Lesley Francis – Secretary and Kim Stefan – Treasurer; as well as the wonderful support of the community who have signed petitions, made donations of their time and money and attended fund raising events.


Wendy Bolton, President of the Bryan County Bark Park, said, “We are very proud to be opening the Bark Park this Fall and realizing our community’s dream of a facility where dogs can run free and off leash.  We invite dogs and their families to celebrate with us at our first annual Paws in the Park Fall Festival at the Bark Park from 10am-3pm on Saturday November 8.  This will not only be a fun event but a vital fundraising day as we still have a large funding gap to close and want to begin to plan for our pavilion and phase two of the Bark Park in the New Year.”


The Bryan County Bark Park is now registered as a non-profit organization in the State of Georgia. Donations may be tax deductible.
