(Greendale, Ind.) - On Giving Tuesday, Friends of Lauren Hill Memorial Park board member Adam Duwel "gave" an update on the progress made at the park.
Since the groundbreaking on August 2, a gravel parking lot has been completed. In recent weeks, fencing has started to go up for the dog park atop of Georgetown Road in Greendale.
"I had the pleasure on my Thanksgiving break from college to go down there and walk it and just to see the fence, and I was speechless," said Duwel. "There was times during this project where you almost thought it is going to fall through, this isn't going to happen and then to go up there and see it, it was pretty neat. We're excited. We need a couple more things to happen to get the park officially open."

Duwel says the park could open in early 2022. More details will be posted on the Friends of Lauren Hill Memorial Park Facebook page in the coming months.
The park will feature open green space, a dog park with two-thirds of an acre for small dogs, one-and-one-third acres for large dogs, and a three-mile mountain bike trail.
