Large Dog Area at Dog Park Closed for Maintenance
Sevierville’s PetSafe Unleashed Dog Park
The City of Sevierville Department of Parks and Recreation has closed the large dog area located within the PetSafe Unleashed Dog Park at City Park. The closure is necessary for maintenance and repairs due to use since the park opened in May 2017.
The closure is expected to last two-three months, so the Parks and Recreation Department is asking for patience and understanding during this period.
“We are thankful and encouraged that the park has had so much use,” said Parks and Recreation Director Bob Parker. “And along with the extensive use comes the need to maintain the grounds.”
For additional information, please contact the Parks and Recreation Department at 453-5441.
Construction on the planned extension of the West Prong Greenway is scheduled to begin on Tuesday, September 3. The $250,000.00 project includes a retaining wall, observation areas, landscaping, lighting and paving. A TDEC grant has been received for $200,000.00 towards the project.
Although the extension only measures approximately seven-hundred feet in length, it poses a challenge due to soil conditions and placement of the retaining wall.
When completed, the extension will connect the existing West Prong Greenway on the west side of the river with the Parkway. The project is expected to be completed by March 1, 2020, weather and other conditions permitting.
