GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) -- Dog owners will have a new place in Green Bay to take their pets to run around.

Green Bay will host a grand opening celebration of the city's first dog park on Thursday at Whitney Park.

The new exercise area is fenced in and allows dogs to be off the leash in the designated area.

City parks officials say the new facility will help promote physical and mental health in dogs and encourage neighborly interaction.

The grand opening celebration will be held Thursday at 10:30 a.m. at Whitney Park.
