Remy’s Dog Park Now Open!

September 7th, 2014

Remy’s Dog Park is officially open to the public!  The local Birmingham community has invested over  750 hours of ‘sweat equity’ to preparing Remy’s Dog Park and now the 6-acre space is ready to welcome you and your dog! 

How did this great new Park feature come to be?  Upon visiting Red Mountain Park’s 1,500-acre development, Ken Jackson’s excitement for the possibility of “designated dog space” resulted in an initial $100,000 from his ‘Mac & Tosh’ Donor Advised Fund at the Community Foundation of Greater Birmingham to build a 6-acre off-leash dog park.  As plans for Remy’s Dog Park(named for his late dog, Remy) progressed, Jackson surprised Red Mountain Park with an additional $100,000 contribution.  Remy’s Dog Park will feature THREE designated fenced-in areas to accommodate large dogs(1.7 acres), small dogs(.7 acres) and special needs dogs-elderly, shy, injured or recovering-(.3 acres).  Remy’s Dog Park features lots of open green space for running and shaded space for resting.
