GoFundMe established for Medina Dog Park
MEDINA – A GoFundMe has been established to raise money for the new dog park planned in Medina, next to the former compost plant on North Gravel Road.
The GoFundMe went live on Monday night. The Friends of the Dog Park Committee has a $20,000 fund-raising goal for the new dog park, which will include three fenced-in areas, one for small dogs, one for large dogs and an agility area.
The Medina Village Board last week voted to set aside about 1 acre of the land at the former compost plant for the dog park.
“This park will allow a large public place for dogs to not only exercise, but work on training and social skills,” Alaina Wilson, the park organizer, stated on GoFundMe. “This will be the first public dog park in Orleans County and we hope that it will also bring in visitors or even future residents, which will help boost the local economy.”
Besides donating through GoFundMe, supporters of the park can also send a check made out to “Village of Medina Dog Park” and it can be dropped off or mailed to the Village Clerk’s Office at 119 Park Ave., Medina, NY 14103.
