A popular Halifax dog park is set to receive upgrades — and work begins this week.
The Mainland Common off-leash dog park is set to receive a new surface in the dog area, repairs to the park’s fencing, installation of “dog agility elements” and a “shade structure,” as well as improvements to the lighting and trail section of the park.
The Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM) says work will begin Tuesday and last until mid-June.
The park will remain open as the work is underway although the active work zones will be fenced off to ensure safety.
Halifax says work crews will be on-site from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday.
The park’s drainage system will also receive improvements.
WATCH: Man forced to euthanize dog following incident at Halifax park
Complaints about the park have been reported since last year — with one man being forced to euthanize his dog after it fell into a hole at the park and became traumatically injured.
The HRM says the improvements will result in a better experience for dog owners in the municipality.
