Lighting and Other Amenities Installed at Iams Dog Park
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark.— New amenities have been installed at Iams Dog Park in west Fayetteville, including LED lights. The new lights will allow park patrons and their furry companions to use the park after dark until 11 p.m. At dusk, park patrons can activate the lights by pushing a button located near the entrance of the large dog area. The lights will then remain on until 11 p.m. To ensure efficient use of electricity, the lights will not come on unless they are activated by the push-button.
Improvements to the dog park also include amenities donated and installed by Mars Petcare. The group planted three maples trees, built and installed three new benches, two sets of agility steps, two tire runs, and an additional doggie bag station.
Parks staff have been working to re-establish grass in certain areas and requests help from patrons by keeping dogs out of the newly-seeded areas. These areas are protected by temporary fencing. Patrons can also help grass grow and ensure a healthy environment by picking up and throwing away your dog’s waste.
Come out and enjoy the lights and new amenities! Iams Dog Park is located in the interior of Bryce Davis Park and can be reached by following paved walking trails from N. Dartmouth Avenue, Yale Street, or W. Castle Pines Drive. Please remember to keep your pet leashed outside of the enclosed dog park.
