Work starts on Dog Park upgrades

       The main parking lot at the Bear Creek Dog Park, off 21st Street at Rio Grande, will be closed for three weeks beginning Oct. 21 for repairs and paving of the currently gravel lot.
       Dog Park visitors are asked to use the parking lot at Bear Creek Regional Park East, located east of the Dog Park at 2002 Creek Crossing, according to El Paso County park planner Jason Meyer.
       The work marks the beginning of a $280,000 county project to upgrade the heavily used Dog Park.
