Pierce Township, Ohio – The much-anticipated Pierce Township off-leash Dog Park is completed and ready for our four-legged furry friends to enjoy. The official leash cutting ceremony will be held on July 4, 2021 following the annual Fourth of July Children’s Parade & Celebration at the Pierce Township park on Locust Corner Road.
“We are beyond excited to officially open the Pierce Township Dog Park,” said Lori Wilson, who led the project.
The Dog Park started with a spark of an idea in 2016 and fundraising began the next year. “The Township’s Park’s committee is proud of the fact that the Dog Park was funded entirely by public donations through community events, such as Parkfest, dog washes and a direct mail campaign,” said Wilson. “The Dog Park project received a huge amount of support from the business community, as well. Words cannot express how grateful we are for the community’s support – without it, the Dog Park would not have been a reality.”
The Pierce Township Dog Park is open to residents, as well as non-residents. It features two separate enclosed areas: one for large dogs and one for small dogs to enable dogs of similar size to play safely, a water fountain for two-legged and four-legged thirsty visitors, plenty of shade trees for those hot summer days. And soon, benches will be installed for anyone needing to rest their weary bones.
Tell your dogs to grab their leash and let the play begin! See you at the dog park! For further information, contact:
