Burien Parks and Recreation and a crew from Beneful will be building dog play equipment and other tasks on Thursday, Nov. 5 from 8 a.m. – 2 p.m. at the new Burien Toyota & Chevrolet Off Leash Dog Park, located at Lakeview Park, located at 422 SW 160th Street.

Volunteers are needed, and are being asked to sign up in advance at Pit Stop Bottle Shop, where you’ll receive a free T-shirt.

“Pit Stop Bottle Shop will be generously hosting a beer and pizza party for the volunteers after our day of hard work,” reads a Facebook post. “So make sure you stop in there and sign up!”

As we previously reported, $30,000 in corporate donations was barked up last June by:

  • $20,000 from Beneful, a dog food company
  • $10,000 from Burien Chevrolet & Burien Toyota

This follows a $15,000 fundraising effort from the B-Town DOG volunteers, as well as $15,000 in matching funds from the City of Burien, for a grand total of $60,000 raised for the new park.

As many of our Readers may recall, in 2013 Beneful sponsored a “Dream Dog Park” contest, in which B-Town DOG’s Kellie Bassen and her pooch Bailey were one of 14 finalists for a $500,000 prize. Unfortunately, they didn’t win, so this donation was an excellent consolation prize.
