Members of the Terrace Rotary Club and their supporters have begun site-clearing work on Terrace Dog Park on Haugland Avenue.

Site clearing began Sunday on the Rotary Club of Terrace's latest project – an off-leash dog park on Haugland Avenue.

Several members of the club and their supporters gathered at the site to construct a gravel access path and additional parking that links the dog park with the ball diamonds at Elks Park. They also brushed and cleared inside the fenced-off area of the park where dogs will be allowed to run off-leash.

Special thanks to the City of Terrace for their support with this project along with several local businesses that donated time, equipment and material to help the project along.

These include McElhanney for providing the design and permitting, Finning for providing a Caterpillar Compact Track Loader, JL’s Excavating for providing the gravel and West Point Rentals for providing the gravel compactor and cutting saws.

The Rotary Club has agreed to donate up to $40,000 for the construction of the park, which is expected to be completed by the end of May.
