Railyard Dogs off-leash dog park has been given the green light to start! It will be located in Riverfront Park at the corner of 19th and Bassett Street. In 2004 a group of downtown residents joined together for the purpose of creating a place for dogs to run off-leash and their owners to mingle in a downtown urban environment. This group and East West Partners has worked hard over the past six years raising money to make this dream a reality.
We are planning to start in about 2 weeks – that’s about how long it will take us to mobilize the subcontractors to build it and other little legalities. We have raised most of the money, and now the Riverfront Park Community Foundation is giving us a loan for the final amount. We still need to raise money but the Foundation is matching us dollar for dollar, up to $42,000.
We need your help! You can purchase a brick that you can customize for only $120.00. You can pay tribute to wonderful dogs of the past, recognize your best four legged friend or leave your name in the park forever. Purchase a brick before June 15th to make sure your brick is a permanent part of the dog park by opening day.
