Name That Dog Park and Win A Prize!

If you come up with creative names for your pooch, you might have what it takes to dream up the winning name for Arlington's first dog park.

The city is holding a monthlong contest to name the park in southeast Arlington. The wooded, 6-acre park will include off-leash play areas for large and small dogs, water fountains, shaded seating areas, decorative fire hydrants and walking trails. It will be behind the city's planned $4.8 million animal shelter at 900 S.E. Green Oaks Blvd.

Participants can suggest names based on a person, a pet or just make a play on words, like Fort Worth's Fort Woof dog park. Entry forms will be available starting April 1 on the city's Park and Recreation Web site,, or at recreation facilities and veterinarian offices.

The contest is open to Arlington residents.

The top three winners will be announced at the park's grand opening ceremony June 16.
