Dozens of dogs with their owners in tow flocked to Knox County's newest dog park on Saturday afternoon.
Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett and the CEO of PetSafe, Randy Boyd cut the ribbon during Concord PetSafe Dog Park's opening ceremony. The dog park is located on Northshore Drive near the Concord Park Par 3 Golf Course.
The new dog park has two separate spaces for small and large dogs. It also features walking trails, a swimming area and a dog washing station among others.
A $100,000 donation from PetSafe made the park possible, as well as funding from Knox County, the Parks and Recreation Department and a Tree Grant from Tennessee's Agricultural Enhancement Program.
This is the second dog park to open in September. The Holston River Dog Park opened on September 5.
