About the Park
Mickey's Convenience Stores presented the City of Killeen a check for $50,000 to help build Killeen's first dog park! The city matched the funds to provide a paws-itively wonderful park for our four-legged friends. The park, located next to the Killeen Community Center, has various toys and play areas for big and small pups.
