A dog park in 100 Mile House is set for installation in the Spring of 2019.
“A delegation with a petition attended the South Cariboo Joint Committee meeting in November 2017 and following that, staff were directed to look into the location and costs options,” said Darron Campbell, manager of community services for the Cariboo Regional District (CRD).
The park will be about an acre (or 0.4 hectares) in size and $25,000 has been approved for the project as part of the capital budget for fencing and gates. Campbell said the quote was received from a local contractor this fall.
The park will be installed near the South Cariboo Recreation Centre, behind the ball diamonds and adjacent to the low mobility trail along the creek.
“This is a good location with a logical connection to the other walking trails on and near the property and the visitor information centre for travellers,” said Campbell.
