A four-year campaign to create a park just for pooches is turning into reality in Baker City.

A contractor is building fences this week near Sam-O Swim Center, 580 Baker St.

“I’m just very excited that it’s come to fruition,” said Gail Duman, a former Baker City councilor and current member of the city’s Parks and Recreation Advisory Board.

The park, which will include two separate areas — one for smaller or timid dogs and the other for bigger dogs — will open later this spring.

Duman, who has been promoting the dog park plan since 2014, said she hopes the park is fully open by May 5, which is National Dog Park Day.

Joyce Bornstedt, the technical administrative supervisor for the city who is overseeing the project, said Tuesday that the May 5 goal is “very attainable.”
