ADELANTO – With only two other dog parks in the High Desert, it is no wonder why the City of Adelanto is ecstatic about the opening of the new dog park at Richardson Park. The grand opening will include a celebration you will not want to miss including a free barbecue, giveaways, vendors, and more. “We are so excited for our residents and their pets to have a place where they both can enjoy the outdoors in a designated location,” said City Manager Cindy Herrera.
