ALABASTER, Ala. (AP) — It’s a good time to be a dog if you’re in the Birmingham, Ala., suburb of Alabaster.

A star of ABC-TV’s “Modern Family” series, Eric Stonestreet, was in the Shelby County city on Thursday to help introduce a $500,000 dog park that opened at a city park.

The dog park was funded with a grant from Beneful dog food. It includes agility hoops; a path with tunnels; a field for playing fetch; water sprays for cooling off on hot days; and a wash station.

The canine attraction was built on a section of the 90-acre Veteran’s Park in Alabaster. DIY network’s “Desperate Landscapes” will air an episode shot at the new dog park.

The Emmy Award-winning Stonestreet has a dog of his own, a 12-year-old rescue animal named Coleman Hawkins.
