About this community:

Horsham Township, PA, located just north of Philadelphia in Montgomery County, is named after Horsham in Sussex in the South of England dating back to the late 1600s. Horsham boasts one of the largest park systems in its county with 821 acres of parks and more than 14 miles of trails that are enjoyed by residents of the Township and its neighboring communities year-round.

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

The amazing pups that frequent Horsham Dog Park (HDP) – and their humans – deserve to win a Bark for Your Park™ grant because they deserve to continue to have a free, safe, and fun environment where they can socialize and interact with other dogs and dog owners within their community. Horsham Dog Park runs on volunteers and donations. The many dedicated community members – whether they are fundraising or donating – contribute year-round to coordinating and participating in events to help raise the necessary funds to support the ongoing maintenance and upkeep of the park. Like so many, 2020 presented challenges that prevented fundraising opportunities. Winning this grant would not only make a huge difference to the general annual maintenance expenses of the park but would also allow the community members the ability to address other improvements or much needed enhancements while allowing it to remain free and secure for all to enjoy.

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

If Horsham Dog Park (HDP) wins a Bark for Your Park™ grant, funds will be allocated toward addressing its biggest problem area – managing the wet grounds. HDP is historically wet land and requires mulch to be spread each year to manage excessive ponding throughout the park’s surface. The mulch, which is currently the park’s largest annual expense, helps to ensure the land can remain usable and safe in all weather and seasons. Horsham Dog Park volunteers have also designated specific areas to plant water-loving trees that will help absorb water in notable problem areas. They will also work with the Township Parks Department to source appropriately sized rocks and trim to address the excessive pooling that collects around the water fountains and park benches and are problematic year-round. Additional funds will be allocated toward fence and bench repairs and weed management, as funds allow.
