The city of Brentwood will consider renaming the Barkwood Dog Park in Tower Park in honor of a longtime city resident at its next city commission meeting Nov. 11.

Following the death of longtime area volunteer and resident Peggy Howell last fall, local nonprofit group Citizens for Brentwood Green Space suggested the renaming during the Brentwood City Commission's Oct. 28 meeting.

“We’d like to work with the city to see if we could name the park that’s by Tower Park [as] Miss Peggy’s Bark Park next year,” CBGS President Gil Hutchinson said. “We think that this will be a fitting name; the group that cared for her came up with the name for the because of her love for dogs.”

Following a recommendation from the park board, the city will consider a resolution to rename the park Nov. 11.

Should city commissioners approve the renaming, the park will be renamed Miss Peggy's Bark Park in February, after the city's agreement with Mars Petcare expires, according to the city. The Mars Petcare Company currently is the exclusive sponsor for the park, according to the city.


In her will, Powell bequested approximately $66,000 in funding, which would be used for future maintenance.
