Sherwood Park is one of Grand Junction's truly outstanding parks, and now has a great new feature for dog walkers.

The park offers a nice sidewalk trail around its perimeter which makes the park a popular destination for walkers, joggers, and dog walkers. Now, dogs using the park will have the opportunity for a water stop along the trail.

With warmer weather moving into the Grand Valley, dog walkers won't have to worry about their dog being without water while taking a summer stroll around the park. A brand new doggie fountain has been installed complete with water dishes.

It's called 'Teresa's Fountain', in memory of Teresa Lynn Whiteman, of Grand Junction, who passed away in 2010 after experiencing complications from a second lung transplant.Teresa donated many hours to the Animal Medical Clinic and Roice Hurst Humane Society walking and grooming dogs.She also visited hospitals and health care facilities with her dogs as therapy dogs for patients.

Dog walkers will find the fountain near the southwest end of the park.
