The Newtown Dog Park in Johns Creek will close for renovations March 1. The renovations of the park, which opened in 2011 at 3150 Old Alabama Rd., include replacing the turf in both the small dog park and main dog park. Both areas of the dog park will remain closed throughout construction.

Renovations are expected to be complete by the end of March.

The fenced one-acre area features artificial turf, sprinklers for dogs to play in, obstacles to play on, plus water fountains for people and pets. Separate areas are designated for large and small dogs, along with benches, shelters, and shade trees.
