This great dog park was built through a partnership with the AlumCreekState Park and a volunteer group, Friends of Alum Creek Dog Park.
The project began in 2004 as the idea of Denis Buehler, an AlumCreekState Park employee. He reached out to the community for help in making this idea become reality. In Oct 2004 the volunteer Friends Group formed and immediately began designing the dog park & fundraising.
Volunteers began building the dog park in Sept 2005 & worked for 12 Saturdays, thru Nov 2005. Work resumed in the spring of 2006.
Thanks to countless volunteer hours, the dog park opened on June 3, 2006. It has grown in popularity and in 2008 approximately 300,000 people visited. (we know because of a traffic counter)
As a user of this dog park, we invite you to join the volunteer Friends Group and help us with ongoing maintenance work, monthly cleanups, improvement projects, special events and fundraising.
