The City of Twin Falls will open a temporary dog park in the area of Harmon Park located at Elizabeth Boulevard and Madrona Street on Tuesday, Oct. 1.

Parks and Recreation Department workers will install a temporary fence along the dirt area of
one in-field on Monday, Sept. 30 to alleviate problems in the spring when the fields are again
used for baseball and softball.

Baxter’s Dog Park is currently under construction at the northeast corner of Blake Street North and Shoup Avenue West after receiving financial support from the Magic Valley Canine Social Club, the City of Twin Falls and other private organizations. It will serve as Twin Falls’ first dog park.

Additional funds are needed to complete the project. Anyone interested in donating to the dog park fund, can go to the city’s website at for more information.
