The Hound Mound at Heritage Park is the Town's 5-acre dog park located on the east side of Heritage Park, as part of the park's phase II plan. Residents provided their ideas for the park's name, and the Town Council approved it on October 19, 2015. The park has separate areas for small and large dogs, and amenities include natural shade, hybrid Bermuda turf, irrigation, seating areas with water fountains, trash receptacles, pet waste stations, landscaping, and 40 parking spaces*.
