There will be plenty of waggy tails at Apex Park, celebrating the opening of a Bark Park, in memory of Roy Woodberry, who ran the dog training sessions at Apex Park in Highbridge for several decades.
The equipment features five pieces of kit, weave posts, up and over, cat walk, crawl through and tunnel. The project costing £9,500 has been funded by donations in memory of Roy Woodberry and funding from Sedgemoor District Council and Burnham & Highbridge Town Council. A recent survey of 1,024 Apex Park users undertaken by The Friends of Apex Park and Sedgemoor District Council found that 72% of visitors go there to walk a dog.
A plaque in memory of Roy will be installed in the near future.
The free to use facility is the second in Sedgemoor. The other is in Coronation Park, Sydenham, Bridgwater.
