Cadence broke ground on a new dog park April 6.

Henderson Mayor Andy Hafen, councilman John Marz, Henderson Parks and Recreation Director Rob Herr, and The LandWell Company President Mark Paris gave remarks about the park. Afterwords, dignitaries including Henderson K-9 units turned, or dug, the dirt.

The park features a large dog and small dog park as well as a third for grass recovery. Included in this five acre neighborhood park is also a children’s play area, a tot lot, and picnic areas.

The park is slated to open later this summer.
