    McDonald Dog ParkPima County’s four-legged constituents can romp and play after dark, thanks to the installation of new lights at McDonald Dog Park, 4100 N. Harrison Road. A ceremony to dedicate the new lights will take place at 10 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 30, led by District 4 Pima County Supervisor Ray Carroll.

    McDonald Park’s upgrade was an $80,347 project led by residents who contributed $8,400. GLHN Architects and Engineers engineered the project and Kimbrell Electric handled construction.

    McDonald Park is the first off-leash facility for Pima County Natural Resources, Parks and Recreation. It’s one of seven county dog parks. The others are:
    • Brandi Fenton Memorial Park, 3482 E. River Road;
    • Flowing Wells Park, 5510 N. Shannon Road;
    • George Mehl Famiy Foothills Park, 4000 E. River Road;
    • Northwest Community Neighborhood Park, 7601 N. Mona Lisa Road;
    • Star Valley Park, 6852 W. Brightwater Way; and
    • E.S. Bud Walker Park, 290 W. 5th St., Ajo
    “It’s true for thousands of years, dog has been man’s best friend,” Carroll said. “It’s only until this era that communities and parks have finally set aside a section where dogs can roam and run free within a designated area. The new lights at McDonald Dog Park will allow two-legged individuals to enjoy the outdoors with their four-legged friends in a safe environment. I’m thrilled to be a part of this commendable project.”
