Miami Lakes, FL - Miami Lakes canines and their owners have been eagerly wagging their tails awaiting the opening of the planned Miami Lakes off-leash dog recreation area to be located at 14048 Palmetto Frontage Rd (NW 77 CT), scheduled to be opened early 2016. In anticipation of the opening, the Town is sponsoring a contest to select a name for the new recreation area.
Naming Contest Details: Entries can be e-mailed to Jackie Calzadilla at firstname.lastname@example.org with "Dog Park Name Contest" as the subject line. Submissions can also be sent by mail to the Town of Miami Lakes, ATTN: Name the Dog Park Contest, 6601 Main Street. Submission deadline is September 30, 2015 at 5pm.
Grand Prize: Dog Recreation area named after the winning entrant’s submission revealed at THE ground breaking and naming ceremony (to be scheduled at a later date) along with a commemorative plaque, recognizing the winner for their creativity.
