Pawtucket to open dog park

PROVIDENCE, RI –

Pawtucket dog lovers are about to see a dream realized.

The city has announced it will open its first dog park on June 11th.

Sought after by dog lovers for years, the dog run will be located in a fenced off portion of Slater Park.

There will be separate runs for large and small dogs. The city will provide "mutt mitts" for the removal of waste.

Dogs under the age of four months and those with a history of aggressive behavior will be banned.
