Osborn Park is about to go to the dogs.
After years of planning and fundraising efforts, the Erie MetroBark Park opens Monday, providing the first place in the Erie MetroParks system where dogs can go off leash and run free, albeit within a fenced-in area.
Park officials will unleash their new off-leash facility at 7 a.m. Monday.
Dog lovers who can't wait, however, can get a sneak peak today, when the "Go Take a Hike" walking program kicks off with a free, family-friendly program at 3 p.m. today.
