Volunteers are needed to help put finishing touches on the new Burien Toyota and Chevrolet Dog Park on Saturday, Jan. 16, starting at 10 a.m.

The park is scheduled for a “soft opening” soon, and work done on Saturday will most likely speed that process up.

As we’ve previously reported, this new off-leash dog park received $30,000 in corporate donations last June – $20,000 from Beneful, and $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.

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.

The new dog park is located at 15810 6th Ave SW, in the upper part of Lakeview Park at SW 160th Street:
