Party For The Barks - Support The New Barkyard
If you think that the micropark BuffOLA dog park has been successful, then get ready for more great barkpark news. Jay 'Micropark' McCarthy has announced a fundraiser in order to support many of the amenities that the park will need once the mid-summer move takes place. From Jay:
"Now that we have the new site identified within LaSalle Park, we also have a price tag that comes with it. We are looking to raise money give us the ability to buy dispensers, ground cover, benches, big rocks and landscaping. We need these amenities to increase the status of the park… a park that is being built with the help of the Water Authority (fencing and water) and The City (grounds). Now it's up to us to raise the funds for the rest of the park. We need people to start donating to this cause to make the Off Leash Area a permanent year around facility with plenty of dog-friendly additions.
"There appears to be some sort of plan to redo LaSalle Park in the future... the new spot that we are looking at will most likely be close to the circle in the middle of the park. Soon Buffalo will offer one of the few new and improved waterfront dog parks in any US city. The move will occur between mid-summer and early fall. We need the public to show up at Coles on July 23rd - 5pm to 7pm. We’ll be featuring microbrews from Flying Dog and snacks from Coles. Sponsors include Buffalo Microparks, BuffOLA and Buffalo Rising."
