CLEMMONS, N.C. — Dogs will have to wait a little bit longer to have their day at Tanglewood Park.

Chuck Houska, lead organizer behind the effort to build a dog park at Tanglewood, said Wednesday that construction has been delayed because organizers must raise an additional $25,000. The extra money will be used to control erosion and stormwater runoff at the dog park.

Organizers have raised $150,000, the original amount needed for the park, Houska said. The extra money will bring that total to $175,000.

“We have gotten tremendous support from the community,” he said. “We just need a little more.”

If organizers raise the additional money, construction would begin in late July or August, Houska said, and the park would open in October.
