In the Spring of 2011, a few local people came together with an idea to start Twin Falls' first dog park. The Magic Valley Canine Social Club worked with the City of Twin Falls and this local group of dog lovers made it happen!
Through a land exchange with Twin Falls County, the City of Twin Falls acquired a suitable location for the park at the corner of Blake St. and Shoup Ave. W. The dog park finally had a home.
With the goal to raise $85,000 to build the park, the Magic Valley Canine Social Club started raising funds selling t-shirts, sponsoring fun runs/walks, soliciting donations and began the annual Dierkes Lake Pooch Splash, a popular event where dogs get to play for a day off leash at the lake.
The Twin Falls Community Foundation provided a nonprofit account to which money could be deposited. A substantial portion of the monies coming from large contributions. With major donations received for the park the City of Twin Falls provided funding to complete the park on August 23, 2014.
