The town for all seasons finally has a place for pooches.

The town for all seasons finally has a place for pooches.

On Monday, the Town of Sylvan Lake announced the opening of a long-awaited park designed for dogs and their people.

A short construction season in 2012 followed by a rainy spring this year delayed completion of the park, which is still undergoing a few final touches, said communications co-ordinator Joanne Gaudet in a statement released on Monday.

An official opening for the Sylvan Lake Dog Park, located at the corner of Memorial Trail and 60th Street, is set for 3 to 4 p.m. on Wednesday. Councillors and staff plan to bring their own four-legged friends along for the event, said Gaudet.

Town staff will also present special treats to the first 50 dogs to attend the site.
