We put off visiting the K-9 Rooster Dog Park, formerly the Meridian Dog Park, hoping the new sign in the new name would be in place. The park was renamed after fallen K-9 Officer Rooster, who was shot in the line of duty in March of this year.
One cool thing about this park, other than its new name: the parking lot. It’s a special new design that allows water to absorb in to the ground instead of going into the sewer. It’s the only one we’ve seen at a Wichita park so far.
Tyson, the awesome senior (13 year old) Boston Terrier, came with us on this adventure and loved it!

Mom Tips: This park is nice, but there’s not a lot of shade. The working fountains are definitely great for keeping dogs and their people hydrated and cool.
Kid Tips: The park was fun and they loved taking Tyson along with us.
