Construction of the Erie MetroParks Dog Park at Osborn Park has begun. The park is set to open this fall, but the Friends of Erie MetroParks Dog Park Committee are hounding the public to fix a remaining problem.
The park needs a name.
To find one, the committee has launched a "Name the Dog Park Contest." The winner submitting the best name will achieve fame among local dog lovers, along with a $25 gift certificate to Gallagher's Central Feed and a one-year registration to bring your pet to the dog park. Information, including your contest entry form, is here.
One more thing -- if you work for Erie MetroParks or serve on the Dog Park Committee, well, sorry! You are not eligible to enter. Contest entries are due June 1.
