The Edmonds off-leash dog park has a new agility obstacle course, thanks to Boy Scouts from Troop 312.
Kamiak High School junior Alex Young designed the obstacle course for his Eagle Scout project and his fellow scouts helped him install the course at the Off Leash Area Edmonds Park on Saturday. Young built three jumps, a set of weave poles and an A-frame ramp.
An Eagle Scout is the highest rank possible in Boy Scouts, and was the culmination of Young’s 10-plus years in the scouting program. In addition to this achievement, Young took part in the troop’s 50-mile hike in the Cascade Mountains last summer.
Sponsoring organizations for this project included Off Leash Area Edmonds and the City of Edmonds Parks Department. Hot drinks were donated by the Starbucks on Main Street, and doughnuts by the Edmonds QFC. Boy Scout Troop 312, sponsored by the Edmonds United Methodist Church, recently celebrated 50 years of serving the Edmonds and Mukilteo communities.
