For nearly two months, the off-leash dog areas at Breck Community Park in Grove City have been closed to slow the spread of a novel coronavirus. Working under the guidance of the state board of health, the city’s parks and recreation department made the decision to reopen the areas on June 1, much to the delight of humans and their active canines. Here, on June 7, Angus the Doberman and Ellie the German shepherd chase after Hayes and his much sought-after Frisbee in the large dog area. Their owners said they were excited to be able to get their dogs out to play and socialize with others.

After chasing the shadow of a ball thrown by her human, Glenn Bundy, 2-year-old Scout takes a brief break before resuming play with her brother Freckles. Bundy said unlike Scout, Freckles actually chases the ball.
Landon Wieging gives his dog Hayes, a 4-year-old Siberian husky and pitbull mix, a well-deserved belly scratch. The Grove City resident said he was glad that the park reopened as his yard is not large enough to meet his dog’s play demands.
