Paragould Park Director Pat Austin is ready to see the dog park become a reality for the city.

“We’re always looking for something new for the community, something they need or something we can offer to keep us moving forward,” Austin said.

The project will cost $40,000. Austin has secured a $10,000 grant from the Paragould Walmart Supercenter and Walmart Neighborhood Market to help pay for it.

The remaining $30,000 will be funded by the city if no other grant money can be found.

The dog park is expected to be completed by next spring.
