City Of Twin Falls Receives $30,000 Donation For Dog Park
Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) Over the past few years the City of Twin Falls has been doing all they can to create a dog park within city limits.
And this last Friday that dream became more of a reality then even.
On Friday the Twin Falls Parks and Recreation Department received a generous donation of $30,000 to build the park.
The donation came from Doctor Marty Becker and his mother.
Dr. Becker, who grew up in Twin Falls but now live in Bonners Ferry, came to town to visit his mother and heard about the need of funds for the dog park.
That's when he and his mother made the decision to donate $30,000 and get the park up and running.
"This should be able to get us up and going this year. At least we can do the construction part of it. The irrigation system should be able to go in this year and the fencing, the two main parts of the park. So really... Dr. Marty Becker's donation really kind of got us over the "Hump" you might say." Siad Parks and Rec Director Dennis Bowyer
If all goes to plan and depending on how fast the grass grows the park could be open to the dogs this coming fall.
The park will be located at the corner of Shoup and Blake Street in Twin Falls
