Johns Creek is asking residents to make its local dog park the envy of all pooch hangouts in the country.

The Newtown Dream Dog Park was recently nominated in USA Today’s 10 Best Reader’s Choice for Best Dog Park in the country. Voting is happening now and ends on Oct. 10.

The contest features 20 dog parks from major cities like Los Angeles, San Diego, New York, Indianapolis, Seattle, Austin and San Francisco. Nominations were made by pet travel experts at BringFido, a dog travel directory based in South Carolina.

Right now, the contest's leaderboard has the Johns Creek dog park ranked as #3.

Since opening in 2011, the one-acre venue has been lauded as one of the top dog spots in metro Atlanta and Georgia overall. The playground is known for its distinct dog house designs and is equipped with sprinklers, water fountains and an obstacle course.

Voters can cast votes in the contest once a day. Winners will be announced at noon on Oct. 14.
