A new dog park has opened in the Mott Haven section of the Bronx.

The park was developed by an intern working for a real estate investment firm based in the Bruckner Building on 3rd Avenue.

Keith Rubenstein, owner of Somerset Partners tasked Sam Varshinsky, an intern who studies at Fordham University to design a dog park at a vacant lot near the building.

With only a $25,000 budget, Varshinsky got to work.

'Mutt Haven' officially opened and the reviews from the community have been positive.

Dogs are allowed to roam unleashed inside of a fenced in area. There are also water bowls for the dogs to drink from and a pool they could use to swim.

The park is open seven days a week and standard dog park rules apply.
