Why this community deserves a Bark for Your Park™ grant:

Broome County deserves to win a Bark for Your Park™ grant because the community has explicitly voiced its desire for an easily accessible dog park. Research shows that since the pandemic, depression, anxiety, and other mental health-related issues have skyrocketed. Broome County strongly believes in the many benefits that dog parks offer to both dogs and their owners, including socialization and exercise. Additionally, the design and implementation process will engage community members and key stakeholders for valuable input. This will result in a stronger connection between community members and to the dog park. Broome County values the safety and well-being of its residents and dogs. The Bark for Your Park™ grant will provide the necessary funding to make this possible. The proposed dog park will be a great way to allow dogs to run free without sacrificing the community’s safety. Broome County needs voters to support this exciting new project.

How this community would use a Bark for Your Park™ grant:

The Bark for Your Park™ grant will be used towards establishing the proposed dog park. The grant will help offset the cost in establishing the proposed dog park and the amenities that will be included to make this park the perfect place for residents and their dogs. The park’s largest expense will be fencing. For pet and the community’s safety, the fence will need to be 5-6 feet tall and have a double gate entrance. Amenities include dog play structures, benches, picnic tables, buffer zones, shade structures, trees, water source, poop bags, and proper signage within the park. Grant money will be used to create a circular trail that can be plowed in the winter accommodate owners and dogs alike.
