Recreation wants to be able to add a dedicated place for Terrebonne Parish residents and their furry friends, companions, and service animals to safely run, play, exercise, bond, and make new friends. Pavilions in this park would host training and health classes for pets and their owners. Recreation would also work with shelter and rescue organizations to offer adoption events.

Plans include separate small and large dog play areas, double gates for safe entry, puppy hydration fountains, agility stations, shaded rest areas, benches for human friends, and a dog wash.
