Sneed Dog Park officially opened next to Sneed Elementary School’s playground on Pagewood Lane. A large, enthusiastic crowd of people and furry friends attended a Grand Opening Celebration on a mild Saturday morning, February 27. The fun included a ribbon cutting, pet family portraits, a doggy costume contest and a doggy tricks contest. Westchase District board chair Harry Greenblatt served as emcee for the festivities.
Sneed Dog Park is Westchase District’s first-ever dog park. Two more dog parks are planned as part of two upcoming parks in the District: Woodchase Park and Wilcrest Park.
Many thanks to sponsor support that made the event even more festive. Petco’s Westchase Shopping Center store donated dental chew bones, free nail trimmings and rabies vaccination cards; the Houston Humane Society brought pet adoption experts and mascots Lizzie and Roo; Blair Johnson Wellness presented the grand prize for the doggy costume; and Zoes Kitchen gave away a free meal for four grand prize for doggy tricks.
