This past Wednesday the city of Pharr broke ground on a new dog park and retention facility, located off Saint Anne Drive.
In partnership with PSJA Southwest Early College High School, the 23-acre park is expected to reach completion within the next six months.
“This is a park not only for people to get out and about and walk their dogs. It’s a dog park, it also serves the biggest problem plaguing this area which is flooding. We have massive flooding and this is part of our initiative to solve the problem here,” said Mayor Ambrosio Hernandez, M.D.
Students will design the park that will not only give residents a new outdoor space to enjoy but also help with flooding issues.
