The City of Renton and Renton's Unleashed Furry Friends (RUFF) will be celebrating the Grand Opening and Dedication of the Cedar River Off-Leash Dog Park Saturday, September 19, 2009. In attendance will be Renton’s Mayor, Denis Law, as well as other representatives from the City of Renton.
Following the 10 a.m. Leash-Cutting Ceremony, there will be a number of fun activities for dogs and owners alike including “Chuck-It” competitions and contests for the smallest dog, largest dog, best bark, and best look-a-like to Lassie, Rin-Tin-Tin and Marley. Throughout the event, RUFF will also be collecting pet food donations for low-income seniors with pets.
Renton’s new off-leash dog park is the result of community effort that involved numerous donations of time, money, materials and equipment by local volunteers and community members. In the midst of a deep recession, RUFF was able to move the dog park from conception to completion within a four-month period thanks to the more than $45,000 in cash, materials and services that were donated.
