At the end of last year, I received a call from Tim Wojnar, ITID Parks Dept., asking for my input on a new dog park they wanted to create. What an honor. What a great asset to our community. For those who do not have fenced yards, those who have well-behaved dogs that love to be social, this is a blessing!
We met after the new year and discussed safety and other concerns. We shared ideas of play areas that would be in keeping with the small budget. We then offered, that we would ” adopt the park “. We will hold periodic events, bringing volunteers to tidy the park, check for maintenance and safety issues, dog adoption events, etc. throughout the year.
We are proudly cutting the ribbon on November 21, 2015. We look forward to assisting and seeing the additions that will become available with each new budget year!
