New dog park opens in Surfside Beach

SURFSIDE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Dog lovers now have a new place to run around with their pets. A dog park just opened in Surfside Beach, located along First Avenue North.

The new park gives dogs the freedom to run around and maybe even play a little catch.  However, some people aren't as thrilled by this new four legged friendly park.

People living near the park are worried about the smell and the possibility of pet waste running into a nearby lake and storm drains.

Surfside Beach officials say they plan to have public works crews on hand to clean the park daily.
