PORT CHESTER, N.Y. -- The Village of Port Chester went to the dogs Saturday. Literally.

The town's first dog park, at Abendroth Park, celebrated its one year anniversary. The day featured a proclamation from the village and 13 vendors including two rescue groups.

Village residents including dog walkers had sought an exclusive area for pets for more than three years. Fundraising efforts by the Port Chester Dog Park Group -- and a $25,000 donation from the PetSafe brand earlier this year -- resulted in the special park off of Touraine Avenue.

The dog park includes three sections separated by fences for big dogs, small dogs and an area known as the “Time Out Corner” for dogs that need some alone time.
