Buchanan Gets Dog Park

The city of Buchanan has opened its first dog park. City Manager Bill Marx tells WSJM News the Field of Dreams Dog Park, located at the south end of Clark Street and is part of the McCoy Recreation Area, is the result of a four year campaign by the dog park committee.

“The put together a little nest egg that they used to buy a little additional fencing,” Marx said. “The city provided them an old baseball/softball field so they were able top utilize the fencing and added to that.”

The dog park provides Buchanan residents and visitors a chance to let their K9s run free. Marx tells us last Saturday’s opening went well, and he was surprised by how-well the pooches behaved. The park includes tables and benches. Marx says the dog park committee plans to continue adding more features moving forward.
