You might have noticed the construction that has begun behind Dave Wright Nissan Subaru on the corner of Center Point and Boyson roads. Construction has begun on the expansion of the car dealership, as well as to make room for the new dog park.
According to Hiawatha Parks and Recreation director, Kelly Willadsen, the dog park should be completed by this fall.
“We are currently working on tree removal and had a volunteer day in November, along with the Linn County Chainsaw Response Team doing a winter chainsaw training,” she said. “We have the boundaries tentatively designated featuring a large dog area and a small dog area. We are designing a bridge that will connect the two areas over a creek. Once all the trees are removed, we will grade the area and install fencing. It’s a work in progress!”
The City of Hiawatha and Dave Wright formed a partnership for the dog park and will be open to the public.
