Baton Rouge, LA (NBC33) — A few clicks of the mouse will get dogs' tails wagging at BREC's Burbank Dog Park.
The park and the BREC Foundation are nominated for a $100,000 prize presented by PetSafe.
Fifteen parks around the country are listed as finalists. The grand prize is $100,000, but four other parks will receive $25,000 for improvement projects.
"We know these parks are extremely popular and that, like any of our facilities, they need to be continually maintained and improved," BREC Superintendent Carolyn McKnight said. "Winning this contest would allow us to build a pavilion for our small dog park at Burbank and possibly add a water feature and other amenities."
Fifteen finalists will be revealed June 5, with the winners announced July 31.
