Dog park opens in Fortuna

The Fortuna Dog Park held its grand opening with about 30 four legged friends and their owners on Dec. 14. The park is now open to the public and has an open exercise area. Visitors will be able to utilize the doggie bags to pick up their furry friends' droppings to help provide a clean and safe environment for local animals and their owners. Visitors to local hotels who travel with their pets will now have a convenient place to take their pooches to stretch their legs and prepare for the next leg of their travels.
