New agility equipment was recently added to Bark du Lac Dog Park in Downtown Lake Charles thanks to a Partners in Parks contribution from Gill Bright Animal Hospital.

Mayor Nic Hunter recently joined the doctors and staff of the Hospital to unveil the new equipment incorporated into the park thanks to a $2,500 contribution to the Partners in Parks fund at the Community Foundation of Southwest Louisiana from the local veterinary clinic and a match from the City of Lake Charles.

“When we started Partners in Parks almost 18 months ago projects just like this were absolutely the goal,” said Mayor Hunter. “Our hope is engage the community in utilizing the City’s parks to their fullest potential. Bark du Lac has a grassroots history, built largely at the hands of volunteers and we are excited to partner with Gill Bright Animal Hospital on this exciting addition to this popular park.”

“At our core, we are a passionate team of animal lovers who believe in a better life for the people and pets of our community. We are passionate about giving back in as many avenues as possible, and being a part of the Bark du Lac Dog Park enhancement allowed us to pursue that passion. We are truly honored to be a part of this experience and look forward to the future of this wonderful park.”

Bark du Lac is located at 111 West Pine St. The park was a collaborative effort between the City of Lake Charles, the Quality of Life Task Force for the Southwest Louisiana Economic Development Alliance and the Community Foundation of Southwest Louisiana.
