DOG PARK - Red Mountain Park will host volunteers and animal lovers who wish to help clear the future site of Remy's Dog Park of overgrowth and invasive plants; last month, during the highly-successful first Doggie Work Days series, two of the six acres were cleared.  Red Mountain Park staff will draw for prizes; free tickets for the Adventure Area at the Park, which features the Red Ore Zip Tour and the Hugh Kaul Beanstalk Forest. 

Background on the recent donation that made the dog park possible: Upon visiting Red Mountain Park's 1,200-acre development, Ken Jackson's excitement for the possibility of "designated dog space" resulted in an initial $100,000 from his 'Mac & Tosh' Donor Advised Fund at the Community Foundation of Greater Birmingham. As plans for Remy's Dog Park (named for his late Jack Russell Shih Tzu mix, Remy) progressed, Jackson surprised Red Mountain Park with an additional $100,000 contribution.
