Fort Bend County, Texas- Fort Bend County Officials and residents gathered on Saturday, March 23, 2013, to celebrate the Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting of the Kitty Hollow Bark Park. The Kitty Hollow Bark Park is located inside of Kitty Hollow Park(across from Sienna Plantation), located at 9555 Highway 6, Missouri City, Texas 77459.
Commissioner Grady Prestage presided over the event ceremonies, and was joined by Commissioners Court officials James Patterson (Precinct 4), and Andy Meyers (Precinct 3), Parks Director, Mike Davis, and Mary deVignes Kendrick, Director of Health and Human Services. This facility is Fort Bend County’s first off-leash Park built exclusively for dogs. The Park is designed to accommodate both large and small breed dogs with identical fenced in areas that include: swimming ponds, dog wash, shaded areas, lots of open space for pets to run, and a walking trail for their owners to enjoy.
This project was completed in phases over a three year period as part of the Park Expansion, Capital Improvement Project. “I am glad the County had the foresight to create a Dog Park for families in Fort Bend County. This Dog Park is a welcomed addition to our growing Park system”, says Commissioner Prestage.
Fort Bend County residents are encouraged to bring their four legged family members out to enjoy the Bark Park, and other additions to Kitty Hollow Park.
