Group trying to bring dog parks to Birmingham area

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - A Birmingham area group is working to bring dog parks to the area.

A dog park is a park that is fenced in and designed specifically for dogs and their owners. The group is called the greater Birmingham dog park association. Saturday the group held a festival at Patriot Park in Homewood.

The festival included a makeshift, fenced-in dog park. The organizer of the group Jason Hebert says Hoover has already agreed to build a dog park and Birmingham is considering the idea.
