The dog park located at Western New Mexico University’s Cornali Field has now reopened after being closed for the past two weeks due to new amenities being added to the park. Metal footings and framing for shade structures, on both the big dog side and the small dog side were installed to make the park more enjoyable for community members. Canopies for the shade structures are still needed and are set to be installed within the next couple of weeks.
