Dogs of all shapes and sizes, and their owners, gathered downtown on Tuesday morning to celebrate the ribbon cutting of the Biggest Little Dog Park. The park is located on the south side of ReTRAC on West Commercial Row between Sierra and West streets.

The park has not only created a place for dogs in downtown Reno, but has also brought enhanced pathways, landscaping, and two new murals to an area that was previously bare dirt and cement. While the park is now open with phase one of the project complete, donations are still sought to begin phase two which will bring shade structures to the park among other improvements.

The City of Reno, Truckee Meadows Parks Foundation, and Biggest Little Dog Park Coalition worked in tandem to create the park. The City of Reno contributed $75,000 from the Residential Construction Tax fund. Truckee Meadows Parks Foundation and Biggest Little Dog Park Coalition have raised $100,000 through donations.

Donations are still being accepted to support phase two of the project. One fundraiser for the project is a pair of four-sided murals currently being painted by artist Hannah Eberle of Pawtraits. For a $200 donation pet owners can have their pet’s likeness painted into the mural.
