KILLEEN, Texas (Aug. 25, 2021) – There’s a brand, new lighting system at Mickey’s Dog Park in the City of Killeen.
Four solar, LED lights were installed and are energy efficient, vandal resistant and safer for citizens who utilize the trails and dog park. The $11,356 project was approved by City Council earlier this year. Construction was not due to be completed until Sept. 1, but they are now ready to go a week early.
Many residents requested the option and said they appreciate being able to walk their furry friends after hours, in the evenings or at night. Residents are still asked to be cautious when visiting at night.
Mickey’s Dog Park is located at the Killeen Community Center (2201 E Veterans Memorial Boulevard) and also has various toys and play areas for both big and small dogs.
We appreciate the Parks and Recreations crew, as well as the Building Services crews who were able to assist with all of the new improvements.
