The Logansport Parks & Recreation Foundation/Department is excited to announce that the goal of $35,000 has been met for the crowdfunding campaign which will build the Wright Street Bark Park. The project, led by Logansport Parks & Recreation Foundation, will receive a matching grant as part of the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority’s (IHCDA) and AARP Indiana CreatINg Liveable Communities program. By providing the minimum campaign total of $35,000, the Patronicity Grant will provide an additional $35,000 match.
Parks Administrator Janet Fawley stated: “Creating the Wright Street Bark Park at Muehlhausen Park will bring many like-minded people together that love and care for ALL dogs. The Wright Street Bark Park will be a place of diverse people that can influence and improve the conditions in which our canine friends live. DOGS will bring PEOPLE together!!”
Local businesses that helped us with the crowdfunding campaign include: Workman & Associates, Central Paving, Cass County Animal Hospital, McCords Do-It-Best, Foppers, Logansport Savings Bank, BHJ-USA, Gundrum Funeral Home, Ironhorse Broadcasting, Hillis, Hillis, Rozzi & Dean, and McGriff Insurance.
Construction of the Park will begin this fall, with a planned ribbon cutting in the early spring of 2024.
