Bark Park Proposed in Whitpain
A dog park could be in the works for Whitpain. A committee of community residents Tuesday night proposed building a place for dogs to run off leash in the new Center Square Park near Saint Helena Catholic Church. It would measure at least five acres and have separate areas for large and small dogs. Donations would be sought for the initial $45,000 startup costs while membership fees, special events and more fundraising would cover operational expenses. The township supervisors have approved spending $5,000 from the parks and open space capital budget to develop plans for the dog park. Since the idea is to have a self supporting facility, that money will be put back after fundraisng begins.
