New McEuen Dog Park Total: $67K

How much is that doggie park in the window? Around $67,000, actually. Undaunted by the sum, the Kootenai County Dog Park Association is optimistic it can have the funds secured in time to build a dog park at the base of Tubbs Hill at the east end of McEuen Field when the downtown park project is constructed next year. "It's a little more than we spent on the last two," said Bob MacDonald, KCDPA chairman, calling the design "a little bit classier" than the other dog parks in town. "It's going to be unique because it's going to be the downtown dog park." It will be more expensive than the other two parks because it will use better materials for the state-of-the-art design, he said/Tom Hasslinger, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

Question: Do you want a state-of-the-are dog park included in McEuen Field upgrade plans?
