A woof over their heads

A dog enjoys an off-leash romp at the 3 Friends Dog Park in Soldotna on Monday, May 21. The City of Soldotna recently installed a covered pavilion in the park. The Kenai Peninsula Association of Realtors, Soldotna Rotary Club and 3 Friends Dog Park donated $6,000 to purchase materials toward the project and volunteered to help with construction. Located behind JOANN Fabrics and Crafts along the Kenai Spur Highway, the two-acre park officially opened last fall.
