El Paso County officials are welcoming everyone to bring their dogs to Friday’s ribbon-cutting of a new dog park at Fox Run Regional Park in Monument near Black Forest.

The facility will provide 5 acres for dogs to get off the leash and run free, county officials said.

The project was made possible by $2,500 from the Partners in the Park program and money provided by Heuberger Motors.

According to a news release, the dog park was added to Fox Run’s master plan after residents in northern El Paso County clamored for a facility similar to one in Bear Creek Regional Park in southwestern Colorado Springs.

The Bear Creek dog park is “one of the county’s most used facilities,” the release said.

Friday’s ribbon-cutting will open the Fox Run dog park at 4 p.m. Parking is near the Stella Drive entrance in the southeastern portion of Fox Run Regional Park.
