Here is a comment from a visitor: “I just got home from the newly expanded dog park. It was awesome! The high fence in the new section and the separate play areas are excellent additions. I knew it was cold & didn’t plan to stay long but my two “snow dogs” had a great time playing with a few other dogs…before you knew it we were there for almost an hour. What a wonderful place for the dogs & dog owners in our community. Thank you for helping make it a reality!!”
Troup 6932 Girl Scouts earning a Silver Award project was to plan and raise funds for a dog park in Upper Macungie Township. The project was started in May 2010 and in November 2011 the first half was completed. The area designed is located along side of the maintenance building; it has a gated section to unleash your dog and is fenced in for your pet to roam. The second fenced area was completed March 2013. Future funding (estimated $5,000) is needed for the drinking fountain. Our 2012 5K Run/Walk raised $4,315.58, private contributions total $1947 to date and the girl scouts have raised $464.38. Our 2013 5K Run/Walk raised $4,043.55! Click here – how you can help!
