MAYOR of Almeria, Ramon Fernandez-Pacheco has visited the brand new Dog park in El Toyo, the third of its kind in the province.
Located in El Toyo, near the Interalmeria TV facilities, the park has more than 2,000 square metres for dogs to play and exercise in.
The space is completely fenced and contains benches, bins and there are plans for the installation of dog toys and games.
Close to €21,000 has been invested in the project, which was spent due to an increase in neighbourhood demand. Mayor Fernandez-Pacheco visited the new facilities alongside the Almeria Town Hall delegate for Urban Services, Juan José Alonso and confirmed that it is down to those using the park to look after it.
He told Spanish media: “Once opened it is the responsibility of the users who take care of it and keep it in the best conditions.”
The park becomes the third of its kind in the province, following in the footsteps of parks already established in the Parque del Andarax and one between Calle Gustavo Villapalos and Calle Jorge Guillen in the Nueva Andalucia neighbourhood.
