Big changes have been happening at Bok over the past few months. The first floor of the building at 1901 S. 9th St. is full of tenants, longer-standing businesses like Fringe Salon are making the move there, along with a liquor license application for a permanent restaurant in the Le Bok Fin space on the rooftop.
Now the former school is going to the dogs, with the grand opening of a new dog park outside of Bok happening on Sunday, February 28.
The dog park is a fenced-in space outside of the school at 9th and Dudley. This outdoor space for the community is just one of the projects being completed with the grant money Lindsey Scannapieco and Scout Ltd. received from the Knight Foundation last year. The $146,960 grant is also going towards projects like a new bus shelter, bike repair station and more.
If you attend this grand opening with your pooch, you will receive free treats and tennis balls. The grand opening is on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
