New Chillicothe Dog Park Seeks More Private Funds from Donors

.

Construction for a dedicated Chillicothe dog park gets underway June 18th.

.

Jhan Corzine says the dog park, which will be located off Yoctangee Parkway between Chillicothe HS Baseball Field and High Street parking lot, will offer dog owners and their pets what they can't currently get in Yoctangee Park. The dogs won't need a leash, where that is required in Yoctangee Park.

.

Corzine says the park will be open between 6am-10pm, seven days a week and will be named in honor of his mother Catherine and his late son Holden. Private contributions permitted the naming rights for the dog park.

.

The City of Chillicothe has already committed $70,000 for the new dog park, but fundraisers are trying to generate another $80,000 to add to that for the one acre-two section park. One section will be for small dogs and the other for larger dogs. Construction for the new dog park begins on June 18th with scheduled completion in August.

.

A fundraiser called "The Pup Crawl" is planned for 5pm-8pm June 22nd at Steiners, Green Tree, Crosskeys and The Dock at $20 per ticket. Go to Eventbright for tickets.
