DOTHAN,AL--Tuesday city commissioners agreed to accept a $50,000 grant from the Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs.
Accepting the grant means the city will construct a "Passive park for people with dogs" at eastgate park.
They will also build restrooms and a pavilion.
"Anytime we can invest in our parks like this, add bathrooms and a pavilion and allow people to enjoy their quality of life, it's a good thing for dothan," said Mayor Mike Schmitz.
A date for construction has not yet been set.
