Hello Dog lovers and Dog Park users of Florence Oregon, we need your signature!

I’ve created this petition in order to provide the city with a strong case as to just how many people want to see the landscape changed in the dog park. Let’s make the dog park a safer and cleaner place for our beloved pooches.

I have lived in this beautiful city of Florence, Oregon for 3 years now and I am always amazed how the community pulls together to help their fellow neighbors. We need the community’s help in this endeavor.

It has been about 7 years since the dog park came to be and it is now in need of restoration. I met with the city and as I expected if we want to change the landscaping, we will have to raise funds to do so, Goal is 15k.

In order to remove all the old chunky pieces of bark that is part of the landscaping in there now and fill with three quarter inch round gravel / Playaway fiber chips combo - we will need to raise these funds. 10k was the estimate given by the city for materials and 5k to help with labor funding and equipment. The gravel will be placed in areas prone to flooding such as entry ways and the large walkway by the water dish.

I took in pictures of the current issues such as the fencing and water dishes and they have agreed to work on patching the fence, replacing the water dishes, dog bag dispenser in the back of the park, and looking into some type of irrigation system possibly for entrance to prevent flooding. They also will work on removing fallen debris around the perimeter of the fence and are going to find a better way of latching the gates. Long Term we would like to see the entire fence replaced.

I want to really push this and get the community excited to make it happen and I can't do it on my own. Please share with friends and family and sign if this concerns you or if you would like to support the cause

It won't happen overnight, but it will happen!

Let’s make the dog park a safer and cleaner place for our beloved dog community.
