Hillsborough County will start construction next week on a dog park that is coming to the Brandon area. 


A dog park, walking trail, and expanded parking lot will be coming to the Bertha and Tony Saladino Park located off Bryan Road. 

Construction is set to begin Wednesday, April 18th and will go through the late summer. 

Hillsborough County said in that dog parks are becoming more popular as pet owners look for a safe, enclosed area where their dogs can play and get fresh air. 

ABC Action News got the first rendering of the park.

A detailed rendering shows an area for a large dog park area, and a small dog park area too.

The county says a baseball field currently at the park will not be removed, rather they are re-locating the backstop fencing to the northeast corner of the site for more space to play.
