It’s hard to believe that Battle Creek’s Home Run Dog Park has been around for 7 years.   Oh, wait.  That’s “dog years.”   It’s only be one year in human years.   The park will celebrate one year this Saturday, August 22nd, 2020.


Michael Delaware, one of the main organizers, says they’ve got the event permit from the city, and hope the community will come out this Saturday from 10 am to 2 pm.
