Memphis' first dog park opens

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC-TV) - Memphis has a new place for dogs to play just in time for summer.

At the grand opening of the new Memphis Dog Park on Saturday, dogs enjoyed losing their leash and running free with other pets and owners.

The park is located in the 2500 block of Avery just off Hollywood behind the Board of Education building.

Adrian Santos was happy to have a new place to take his dogs.

"This is a great addition to the Midtown area," Santos said.  "We're totally happy this is here so now we can take our dogs off the leash and they can run around, get some exercise, burn off some energy and not bother our neighbors at the apartments."

The one and a half acre park is split so small dogs can be separated from large dogs.

Officials said if the park is successful, they will look at adding more dog parks in Memphis.
