TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- Dog lovers, listen up. There's a new hot spot for your pooches popping up this week.
A new dog park is opening on the northwest side of E. Peck Greene Park, next to the LeRoy Collins Leon County Library. It features two fenced-in play areas for dogs, and a shady area for pet owners to lounge around.
This is the fourth dog park in the Capital City, and the first in the downtown area. The other parks are located in Tom Brown Park, San Luis Mission Park, and Boulevard Park.
"It gives people a chance to actually interact in the community, meet new people. Just leave your dogs in the fenced in area and just relax. Let the dogs actually play," said Tallahassee resident, Bryan Tharpe.
The City of Tallahassee will host a ribbon cutting for the opening of the park on Tuesday at 11 a.m. Both owners and and their pets are welcome to attend.
Owners may not bring more than three dogs to the ceremony. All dogs must be over four months old, properly vaccinated, healthy and display a current rabies tag.
