Work Delayed Until The New Year For Baxter's Park


By Brittany Cooper

Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) Work has wrapped up for the year on Baxter's Park, Twin Falls' future dog park.

The city has installed an irrigation system, volunteers put up the fence and Magic Valley Compost donated the compost.

Next spring expect to see the water being hooked up and installation of hydro seed.

Plus crushed rock along the pathway for the dogs' parents looking to get exercise.

Baxter's Park will also help meet an objective of the City of Twin Falls Strategic Plan.

In the effort to create a healthy community that promotes active lifestyles.

"The park is a work in progress on this here. So we're not quite done all the way. We won't be done in 2014 either, we'll have some more improvements in 15, and hopefully we'll have it done in 15, but sometime June, July we'll have that grand opening tail wagging day here at the park," explains Twin Falls Parks and Recreation Director Dennis Bowyer.

You can donate to Baxter's Park on your water bill or through the Twin Falls Community Foundation.

Meanwhile, the temporary dog park located at Harmon Park Field 3, will be open until March of next year.
