Grand Opening of Hacienda Dog Park
Cameron Park

Cameron Park – March 28, 2014 – El Dorado Dog Owners Guild (EDDOG) and the Cameron Park Community Services District (CPCSD) will celebrate the opening of Hacienda Dog Park in Cameron Park on Saturday, April 12th, 2014, 11am until 2pm, rain or shine. 'Dog Day Afternoon' is the culmination of a project, eight years in the making, to build the first off-leash dog park on the Western Slope of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in El Dorado County.

"This is a wonderful opportunity to thank all who helped make our dream a reality" said Holly Morrison, President of EDDOG. "We invite the entire community and their canine companions to join us in this celebration. Come share the fun!"

The event will feature brief presentations and donor/volunteer acknowledgements at 12 noon and a lovely display of Memorial Bricks purchased by members of the community to honor their dogs or provide businesses with evergreen advertising. Classes in dog park etiquette will be held in both the large and small dog parks. There will be candid photo ops, guessing games, dog paw art, a canine fancy dress parade and a kissing booth by Dylan! Vendors will offer lunch and a variety of dog-related merchandise and information including dog hiking trails, pet pastries, canine collars and costumes, holistic & natural food, lawn & garden art, dog turf, wellness therapy and more.

Hacienda Dog Park is located at Cameron Park Drive and Hacienda Road in Cameron Park.
