Years of work has paid off for some happy dogs in Columbus.

The Columbus Telegram reports residents began looking for land nearly a decade ago where they could establish a dog park.

They finally found a 2-acre site last year and began work in October on fencing, lighting, benches and other features.

Organizers officially opened Columbus Bark Park with a ribbon-cutting event Saturday.

The park is funded by private donations, fundraisers and donated labor.

The first phase cost about $11,000, and organizers say they now will focus on erecting a metal sign listing park rules, landscaping, improved parking and water fountains for people and dogs.
