Bullhead City, AZ., August 31, 2022- The employees of Home Depot have given back to the community once again. Tuesday, August 30, Home Depot staff delivered 6 benches to the Community Park Dog Park.  

            “I saw a conversation on Facebook about a need for seating in the dog park, and I thought we could do something about that,” said Lori Turman of Home Depot. 

            After a discussion with Store Manager, Adam Schafer, Turman and a team of employees at the local hardware store created a solution for their local four-legged-friends and their human owners. 

            “Adam called me out of the blue one day and asked if he could build some benches for the dog park,” said Dave Heath, Bullhead City Parks Maintenance Superintendent. “I was thrilled to take him up on the offer.  I think he told me they would build two or three, but they showed up today with 6 benches!” 

            According to Heath, dog owners are always in need of places to sit while their pets run and play.  

“I’m certain the new park furniture will be a hit,” Heath said. 

This isn’t the first time the staff of Home Depot have put their volunteer efforts into the park.  Previous projects Home Depot staff have contributed include creating ceramic art for the restroom next to the dog park, painting trash cans, as well as donating and building a playground with the community on two separate occasions.  

Shafer said the team at Home Depot is always ready to give back. 

“I told Dave, whenever they need something, just let us know.” 

The dog park at Rotary Park celebrates its 10thanniversary in 2022.  Originally built by the Colorado River Women’s Council Leadership Class, the park has been one of the most popular attractions in the entire Bullhead City parks system.  

The park is open every day from 4:30am to 11:00pm. The dog park is split into two sections: one side for small dogs, the other for large dogs. Entry to the park is free of charge.
