Hundreds of dog owners in Terrace finally have a safe site for exercising and socialising their dogs in a dedicated park. Not only had the City of Terrace received multiple requests for an off leash dog park, RC Terrace had also heard from the community about this need. Dog owners who do not have a fenced yard now have a place where they can let their dogs exercise and interact with other dogs. Dogs benefit from socialising with other dogs and the owners also benefit from interacting with other owners. This first dog park in Terrace opened in 2022, thanks to $31,000 in funding from the Rotary Club of Terrace, and a $10,000.00 Rotary District Grant, plus services provided by the City of Terrace.
That investment included considerable volunteer time of club members and friends for their "hands on" contributions in clearing the site and pruning trees left on the site. Local engineering firm, McEllhaney, contributed engineering support.
The City now operates and maintains the park.
