The first dog park in Spokane Valley opened this morning. Located on the corner of Mission Avenue and Bowdish Road, the park is referred to as a "pocket dog park" because it's relatively small, but dogs of all sizes are welcome. There's a separate area for dogs smaller than 30 pounds as well as dog watering stations, poop bag dispensers and disposal containers. 

The park is open from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily and dogs and children must be with an adult; dog handlers must be at least 16 yaers old. Dogs must be four months old, licensed and vaccinated, and they must be on a leash while coming and going. The handler must keep the leash ready at all times inside the park.
