New Reservoir park will welcome four-legged family members

ROSS BARNETT RESERVOIR, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

There will soon be a new playground at the reservoir, especially for your canine friends.

The Dog Park at the Rez will be a public park open to all dog owners to let their dogs off a leash in a safe, fenced-in environment.

The park is said to provide plenty of room for exercise and interaction with other dogs.

"A group of people came to us seeking our support of a dog park, and convinced us of the need," said Bobby Cleveland, a member of the Board of Directors of the Barnett Reservoir Foundation.

Cleveland went on to say, " The immediate area includes many apartment complexes and well as homes with unfenced yards, many of which are home to pets that do not have access to open spaces where they can run free.

“The park will provide those dogs and their owners an alternative to simply being walked on a leash. We’re excited to play a part in this proposed park," Cleveland.

Information on making donations to the Dog Park at the Rez can be found by visiting the Barnett Reservoir Foundation online at
