The community dog park at Liberty Park has been a success so far, according to parks commissioner.

Officials hope a community dog park in Batesville will be here to stay by next year.

The city installed a trial-based dog park on the east side of the tennis courts at Liberty Park in August, after the proposed area was relocated from South and Depot Streets.

“The dog park was used heavily, and the city received very positive feedback on the park.” said Parks Commissioner Mike Baumer.

The city hopes to have a permanent dog park installed by next spring if funding is available.

“If a permanent dog park is added, it will be made bigger,” reported Baumer.

He indicated that he would like to have the drainage issue resolved before the dog park would open.

Baumer added, “The trial based dog park at Liberty Park will be closed for the winter, on or after November 18.”
