    Lander’s new off-leash dog park was definitely loved by the many pups in attendance during Saturday’s grand opening. The park is located next to the softball fields off of Baldwin Creek Road and has dedicated space for active dogs, less active dogs and a ball throwing area with access to the water.

    Lander Parks and Recreation Director Sara Felix explained the property the dog park sits on is leased by the City of Lander and owned by the School District. In order to build the dog park there, approval from the School District was needed along with support from surrounding property owners and users.


    The park will continue to be maintained by Lander Parks and Recreation along with volunteers on the Dog Park Committee.
