K-9 Rooster Dog Park formerly Meridian Park

#48 K-9 Rooster Dog Park (formerly Meridian Park) – 2127 N Meridian,

Background: Fidelity Financial Corporation donated the land to the city in 1995. On June 13, 2017, City Council changed the name of Meridian Dog Park to “K-9 Rooster Dog Park” to commemorate fallen Officer Canine Rooster, who was shot and killed March 19th, after five years of duty with the Wichita Police Department.

What we did: We wish we would have brought our dog, KC, along for the visit. And if you don’t have a dog, there is not much to do at the park. The dog runs are nice, and next time we do a dog park, we will take our trusted girl.

From a dog who dedicated his life to the city of Wichita, to another park dedicated to a man, who’s contributions saved countless lives.
