With the help of the community, we will soon have a dog park in Egg Harbor!
We are thrilled to announce that a conditional use permit has been issued by the Village of Egg Harbor for a dog park to be located in Village View Park on Church St, south of the Peg Egan Performing Arts Center. The park will have two, fenced sections; one for small dogs and a more spacious area for large dogs. Having a place where dogs can run freely and play with other dogs is a valuable asset to both dog owners and our community.
The Village of Egg Harbor has granted use of the land, but in order for our dogs to be safe, the area must be fenced and that’s where all of us come in. We need to come up with the funds to build the fence, provide benches and after that, add a weather shelter for the human visitors. The fallow area within Village View Park that has been designated for our new dog park lies along Church Street from the driveway to Harbor School Road. The area is approximately 100’ x 375,’ with an elevation change and shade trees that will make this park distinctive from those in Sister Bay and Sturgeon Bay.
As is the best practice in dog park design, we will need a 6’ fence with double entrance gates, plus a gate between the two sections within the park. To accomplish the purchase of the fence, installation, benches, picnics tables and a shelter, we must raise $20,000.
For a $200 donation, you may become the sponsor of a 10’ fence section. Each 10’ section will have a metal plaque giving the donor’s name or memorial dedication. A $500 donation will buy a picnic table with, of course, a plaque acknowledging your gift. A donation in the amount of $1000 will provide the weather shelter. A donation of any amount will be acknowledged with a listing on our donors’ register and earn a bag of dog treats, courtesy of Greens N’ Grains.
This is not a 501 c 3 donation and therefore not tax deductible. If you would like to be a part of this exciting new amenity in Egg Harbor, please make out a check to “Harbor Hounds” and include your mailing address, email address and send your donation to:
