The city of El Monte opened its first dog park, Fletcher «Fetch» Park on October 3, 2020.
Volunteers from Local 721 and the Women’s Axillary built custom Doggy Bone Benches and signage for the park. The new park broke ground in March 2020 – with a small budget and a small timeline for completion. The work on the park was fast tracked due to the volunteer work of Southwest Carpenters Local 721 in Whittier.
El Monte Mayor, Andre Quintero, presented representatives from Local 721 and the Women’s Axillary with special certificates thanking them for their contributions to the park.
