Denton’s dog park debut

Denton resident Ben Johnson plays with his dog, Oliver, at North Lakes Dog Park, which opened Thursday in Denton. The new 3.65-acre dog park, a project that was delayed many times in the past four years, features three separate play areas and a fourth small flexible area for play, agility and/or dog obedience programs. Parks crews did most of the work, bringing the final costs down to about $500,000 for fencing, irrigation and planting dozens of new trees. Jeff Woo/DRC
