FORT SMITH, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) — Fort Smith’s dog park has officially closed because of the expansion project at Fort Smith Regional Airport.
The park sat near the airport too close to a runway expansion the airport is working on.
People who used the park say it was beloved by the dogs of Fort Smith.
The city plans to meet with residents December 2 to talk about the possible next steps of a new park.
The town hall will be at Blue Lion on 101 N. Second Street at 6 pm. It will be an opportunity to talk with the Fort Smith Board of Directors about what could replace the dog park.
