The city of Diamond Bar is making more improvements this month to the Bark Park at Pantera Park and plans to close it Monday while the work is done.
In order to improve Americans with Disabilities Act accessibility, crews are constructing paved paths from the existing park walkway to each entry gate that leads into the dog play area, according to the city's website. Also underway is the construction of a new set of stairs.
After the walkways and stairs, five more benches will be installed, according to the city.
The Diamond Bar City Council approved a $40,920 agreement for the accessibility work in early September. Also approved was the appropriation of $23,000 from the general reserves for the stairs and some shade structures.
Diamond Bar opened its dog park, which features two shade structures, three drinking fountains for pets, five dog waste bag dispensers, 12 benches, and four trash cans, in November 2012.
The Americans with Disabilities Act improvements are scheduled to be finished by Thanksgiving weekend. Signs will be posted at the park regarding the closure.
