Bark Park Coming to Terre Haute

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - A “Bark Park” is coming to Terre Haute.

The Terre Haute Board of Works also approved a 99 year lease of a former Vectren site adjacent to Fairbanks Park.

The lease calls for a payment of $1 per year.

The city says this has been several years in the making.

Vectren will remediate the site at its expense.

This includes installing a barrier 18 inches underground to keep dogs from digging into contaminated soil.

Vectren has agreed to place 18 inches of top soil.

The city parks department will pay for a new fence to surround the perimeter of the 1.1 acre park.

Construction will begin this summer with the bark park opening this fall.
