   GATLINBURG , Tenn .
   —With humans and dogs alike present at Mills Park on Thursday afternoon , the City of Gatlinburg celebrated the Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting of its Dog Park at Mills Park .
   Thursday’s ceremony marked the celebration of the facility , which has been open since November 2021 as an option for Gatlinburg’s citizens and visitors to use with their faithful companions .
   Many dogs enjoyed the Dog Park under sunny skies on Thursday afternoon as the City celebrated the Grand Opening of the Park , with many citizens in attendance to commemorate the occasion . Food City of Gatlinburg provided human and canine treats , while Tennessee State Bank served hot dogs at the celebration , which was billed as a ‘St . Pawtricks Day’ themed event .
   “The Dog Park will be a great addition to our City Parks and we are thrilled to have it here at Mills Park , ” Gatlinburg Recreation Director Laurence Evans told the crowd in attendance at Thursday’s ceremony . “The City is thrilled to give this option for dogs and their owners to enjoy . ”
   Mayor Mike Werner also noted that with the City recognized as of the nation’s premier tourism destinations , the Dog Park will be a destination for those who are visiting Gatlinburg .
   “Data shows that more people are bringing their dogs on vacation and that dogs are becoming more of the family than ever before , so it is only fitting that they bring their dog on the family vacation and we’ve got an excellent addition to our community with this Dog Park , ” Werner said .
   The City of Gatlinburg was one of 15 communities across the state to be awarded a Tennessee Dog Park Dash Grant in June of 2021 . The Dog Park Dash grant program , administered by the Boyd Foundation , allocated $25 , 000 in funds for the construction and development of a dog park in Gatlinburg . The remainder of the project was funded by the City of Gatlinburg .
   The Dog Park at Mills Park is the 87
   th
   such facility to be supported by the Dog Park Dash program in the state .
   Harrison Forbes with the Dog Park Dash was on hand at Thursday afternoon’s Grand Opening Celebration and remarked that Gatlinburg should be excited with the quality of the facility that has been constructed .
   “When we came in and started talking , Gatlinburg had things designed and very well thought out , ” Forbes told those in attendance . “You should be very proud of the park you have here , because I can promise you with all the parks I see in Tennessee and nationwide , this is one of the best parks in the entire southeast . ”
   LOSE and Associates architect Daniel Boutte designed the Dog Park and FTM Contracting was the Project contractor .
   The Dog Park at Mills Park features a great opportunity for large and small dog owners to enjoy with their pets . The two fenced in areas feature a double - gated entrance to prevent dogs from getting loose . Both parks offer a large fenced - in area for dogs to exercise and play off leash . Both the small and large dog facilities feature shaded areas , turfed grass areas , benches , and dog - waste bags and trash cans . Water fountains are accessible outside the gates of both the large and small dog parks .
