Mirror staff reports:
Mayor Skip Priest and Federal Way City Councilwoman Jeanne Burbidge joined Park Pals board members and their four-legged friends April 4 to dedicate the new dual-purpose water fountain at French Lake Dog Park on 1st Avenue South.
Park Pals raised more than $5,000 to install the feature, which provides water for thirsty dogs and their people. The fountain will provide fresh water for park patrons, and ideally, should reduce the number of discarded plastic cartons that are often used to carry water. Learn more at parkpals.org.
French Lake Park opened as an official off-leash dog park in summer 2005. Located off 1st Avenue South between South 320th Street and South 312th Street, the 10-acre fenced-in park is owned by Federal Way and the Lakehaven Utility District. The property had been informally used as an off-leash dog park since the 1990s.
