It will have limited hours to start, based on volunteer availability. The non-profit, raised $42,000 to complete the first phase of construction.

"Finally dogs will get to socialize and exercise here and interact with one another of leash, but we want to make it comfortable so that is the next goal and we want to make this one of the best dog parks in Virginia," said Niro Rasanayagam, the treasurer for Friends of the Lynchburg Dog Park.

Right now the park consists of a fence, signs and a fundraising wall.

Supporters are trying to win $100,000 in the PetSafe Bark for Your Park contest to furnish the amenities.
