Scores of dog lovers, community leaders, donors and volunteers were on hand to dedicate Anderson’s very first dog park on July 12th.

Project director Dr. Marshall Meadors, III presided over a dedication and ribbon cutting ceremony to officially open The Dog Park, located at 415 North Fant Street. Parks and Recreation Division Head Bobby Beville accepted the keys to the park on behalf of the City of Anderson.

The Dog Park is the fourth project of the tba 100, a fundraising initiative of Foothills Community Foundation.  Since its inception ten years ago, the tba 100 (i.e. to benefit Anderson) designed, funded and completed the following beautification projects:    Generator Park, the Carolina Wren Fountain and Caton’s Alley.  Foundation President Dean Woods announced that the tba 100 steering committee will reconvene soon to consider their next community improvement project. Woods explained that the tba 100 is a success story due to collaboration among the City of Anderson, Anderson County, AnMed Health, private donors and the Foundation.
