LAKE CHARLES, La. (AP) - Lake Charles is opening its first playground for pooches on city-owned property later this month.

The American Press reports (https://bit.ly/29fozoD ) a July 16 grand opening is set for Bark du Lac Dog Park.

The push for the park gained momentum last September when the City Council approved construction.

Local officials say the park will give local residents and travelers a place for their four-legged friends to socialize.

Most of the $30,000 to fund the park was donated between January and May.
