Dog lovers and their four-legged friends descended upon Arroyo Park Saturday morning for the opening of the new South Paws-adena Dog Park.
City officials cleverly called the occasion a “leash cutting” as dignitaries did just that – cut a leash to open up the newest amenity in town.
Many parked on Arroyo drive and followed a path, complete with paw prints, down to the park at 650 Stoney Drive in the city.
The festive event featured areas for large and small dogs, plus inflatable bouncers for children, a photo booth where dog owners could walk away with a free picture with their pet, an opportunity to adopt a dog from the Pasadena Humane Society, as well as receive dog licenses.
“I’m glad to have a dog park,” said resident Polly Wheaten, joined by her dog Wheaton.
