MERIDIAN -- The city of Meridian is moving forward with plans for a new dog park.
It will be a two-acre site in Storey Park, along Watertower Lane -- with separate areas for big and small dogs, picnic shelters, agility equipment and doggy drinking fountains.
Right now that's all in the design and development phase and the city has not set an opening date.
The community has used the Meridian Police K-9 training area as a temporary dog park since 2009. That will close on January 2nd when construction starts on the new public safety training center.
Off-leash dog areas will be available in Julius Kleiner Memorial Park.
