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

There are quite a few ideas for a new dog park in Sesser! First, the park will provide a much-needed location for dogs and their owners to meet and socialize, providing a space for dogs to safely play off-leash. It would provide spacious running areas with natural terrain for dogs of all sizes. This park will also bring opportunities for a place to host Dog Day events in the park. This would allow different local businesses and clubs to introduce themselves and explain the services they have to offer for dogs and their humans. Such groups might include, but would not be limited to, local animal shelter/adoption services, local veterinary clinics, pet stores, groomers, dog trainers, and hobby groups. Other events planned for this park would be outdoor agility and obedience training shows. A new dog park would be a valuable asset to the city of Sesser!
