Posted July 5, 2007 2:48 p.m. EDT

— The town's first dog park has opened on North White Street.

The two-acre Flaherty Dog Park is next to the Flaherty Park baseball and softball fields. It is free and open daily from dawn until dusk.

The park includes a paved entrance and two exercise areas. Each of the fenced areas -- one is for small dogs, and the other is for larger dogs -- includes grass cover, picnic tables, shade trees, waste stations and a water fountain for both canines and their keepers.
