ROCKFORD (WREX)- A local dog park is getting a new addition that will let it stay open later.
Lights are coming to the Canine Corners Dog Park at Searls Park in Rockford.
With the push of a button, anyone can activate the lights to enjoy the park with their pet.
The lights were donated by Eric Sonnenberg, a long-time park user who passed away last year.
The lights will go on for the first time on Saturday at 8 p.m.
The public is invited to a celebration of the lights at that time. Refreshments for people and dogs will be served.
