After 2 years of hard work, lots of fundraising,and many new friendships, the Beacon Dog Park will open on Saturday, March 30th with a ribbon cutting at 2 pm.
Let me first state, it’s been a monumental effort getting this last stage
complete, there were so many things to learn, coordinate and take care of, I
thank everyone for their patience and continued donations during these last
I want to thank everyone who donated and played
a part getting this park this far – I very much appreciate all of your help,
kind words, and warm support.
Over the past six weeks, we have all enthusiastically watched the park materialize before our eyes. I am delighted to report that the main construction of the park is now complete!
We are now moving forward with a plan to open the park as soon as possible – our
target opening date is early February.
All of our Phase 1 goals were accomplished and include:
two separated enclosures (for large and small dogs),
key’d entry gate, and working water hydrants!
Over the next 6 to 8 weeks the following will be
purchased & installed: donor appreciation plaques, signage,
information boards, brick garden, trash
cans, benches etc.
Membership to the park will be open to everyone within Beaconand the surrounding towns provided your dog
is licensed in your home municipality, your dog is well behaved
and properly socialized, you pay the annual fee of $45 per family
(and $10 per additional dog)
Within the next few weeks, you will all receive an
email about how to register for park membership.
We’ve added a new donation tier called “Kindhearted Dog Lover” and you can choose whatever amount you are comfortable with – we thank you in advance.
– we are offering bricks which can be inscribed with a name, message,
and/or dog motifs. They are available for a $200 contribution, if you
have already donated in the past, we will absolutely lump you previous
donation upwards -visit our bricks page for more details.
is still a lot to get done before we can open and we ask everyone to be
patient as we coordinate everything that needs to occur – please
remember this is an all volunteer team who have been working hard for
the past two years :>
very kind and generous family in Beacon has offered to match
dollar-for-dollar (up to a $1000 max) an donation between today and Oct
20th. If you haven’t donated yet, please consider doing so – your donation will effectively have double the impact.
On behalf of all the supporters of the dog park, we thank this family for their generosity.
