This park is reserved for dogs

Hyderabad: While most parks are out of bounds for dogs, a park has been developed especially for dogs in the city. This is the first park of its kind in the country.

The park, spread over 1.5 acres, has all the facilities for exercising and training dogs. The park, developed by the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation, has separate enclosures for big and small dogs, two pools and equipment needed to train dogs.

Such parks are common in the Western countries but it is for the first time that such a facility has been developed in India, a municipal corporation official said.

The park has been developed at a cost of Rs 1.2 crore at a place which was a dump yard. Pet lovers and specialists were consulted while preparing the design.
