Mayor Ward Stamer cuts the ribbon, and officially opens Barriere’s new Dog Park, with (l-r) Councilors Donna Kibble, Judy Armstrong, Amanda Sabyan, Rob Kerslake, Scott Kershaw and Public Works Manager Chris Matthews. Local canines, Russell and Echo, joined in on the excitement while anxiously waiting for the gate to open. The dog park is located along Airfield Road in Community Park, and consists of secure double entry/exit gates and two separate areas – a small dog area and an any size dog area. Residents are asked to help protect this long awaited asset by following the posted facility rules and by being responsible dog owners. (Ellen Monteith photo)
