It will take the city of Ann Arbor a bit longer than expected to open a new dog park near downtown that was approved earlier this year. 

City park planner Amy Kuras says her team has created a layout for Broadway Park.  But they encountered some obstacles when they visited the property.  Several homeless encampments are currently occupying the site.  

So for now, opening day has moved to late August instead of earlier in the summer.  There is also a lot of debris that needs to be cleared out of the park.

This will be the third dog park in Ann Arbor.
