South Coast dogs may soon have something new to wag their tails about.

The Dartmouth Dog Advisory Work Group presented the Dartmouth Select Board with their dog park proposal last night.

The proposed 7,600 sq. ft. park would provide a safe and fun place for dogs to run free and interact with other dogs.

Select Board Chairman Mike Watson supports the proposal and says it'll be great for the community.

DDAWG vice president Diane Camacho told the board that an unnamed private foundation has agreed to pay 90% of the project costs if the town committs to the remaining 10%.

The estimated cost for the park is $250,000, but the town is only responsible for $36,700.

Dogs from surrounding communities will be allowed to access the park, but all dogs and owners must register with DDAWG and will have a key card to open the park entrance.

Town meeting members will vote on the funding at the June 3rd town meeting. If funding is approved, DDAWG hopes construction will begin late this summer.
