The San Angelo Dog Park will be temporarily closed from April 9 into May so that further upgrades can be completed.
During this period, more turf will be established and extra canine play installations will be added to the park.
The Parks and Recreation Department will also experiment with a leash free area.
The dog park opened last fall and includes separate fenced areas for both small and large breed dogs.
The park recently received the Park Development Innovations Award from the Texas Recreation and Parks Society.
