Wood Family Donates Land For A Police Dog Facility

A donation of four acres of land by the Pat Wood family to Legacy Parks Foundation will allow for a new downtown dog park and a new home for the Knoxville Police Department’s canine unit. The new dog park/canine facility will be located across from the Public Safety Building on Howard Baker Jr. Avenue. Legacy Parks will help coordinate the project. The gift is the second donation of land by the Wood family to Legacy Parks for the creation of new parks within the city. In October 2013 they donated 100 acres off Sevierville Pike to expand Knoxville’s Urban Wilderness with additional multi-use trails, including introductory bike trails.
