Some pet owners in Beaufort County can now leave their leashes at home that's because a new dog park in Washington is open and ready for visitors.
It's the first of its kind in Washington, the park lets pets ditch their leashes and run wild, well at least in the fenced in space at the corner of 4th and Brown Street. A group of pet owners thought it was exactly what the community needed, especially for the elderly.
The city didn't have to pay a dime for the facility, it was completely funded by donations. It took volunteers about nine months to raise the $10,000 needed.
