Holton City Commission approves plans for “bark park”

A “bark park” for Holton-area dogs could be open at Countryside Park as soon as this fall, the Holton City Commission learned on Mon­day.
Members of the city’s Dog Park Committee met with the city com­mission to discuss plans for the dog park, to be built near the soccer fields at Countryside Park and named “Dogwood Park.” In addi­tion to approving plans for the lay­out of the park, commissioners also heard comments from committee members about how the park will be managed.
Commissioners were also re­minded that all funds for construc­tion of the dog park came from do­nations rather than city funds — in fact, the park’s construction was in­spired by a donation from the late Judy Hann of more than $122,200, according to dog park committee chairman Janet Zwonitzer. The park will be built and items in the park installed by city employees, Zwonitzer noted.
