Shreveport's dog park on the riverfront is scheduled to open next month.

Construction has been delayed a bit because of flooding and weather related issues, but the contractor is now moving full steam ahead.

City leaders say this is another great thing for local residents to enjoy on the riverfront.

Private companies are being asked to chip in to sponsor various features at the park like the benches, the water fountains, the bridge and others. This will help offset some of the continuing upkeep costs for the park.
