LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Dog owners will have a new place to take their four-legged friends.
Thanks to efforts from the city and owners of Park Plaza in Phoenix Park, residents now have a safe place to allow their furry family members run around unleashed.
Work on the project started about a year ago. It opened last week.
"I have lived here almost eight years now and having a dog almost five years there's nowhere inside of New Circle where you can take your dog," Jason Ervin says. "So, it's been a great addition to the residents and downtown it's a great use of Phoenix park as well."
Officials with Parks and Recreation say this is more of a dog pad then a dog park.
