DONOR TO OFFER FUNDING FOR DOG PARK IN BARKER PARK


Local donor, fundraiser and dog park proponent Karen Hoelzer has generously offered to work with the Park District and the community toward the construction of a dog park in Springfield Park District’s new Barker Park development.
Dog Park proponent and fundraiser Karen Hoelzer stated “I look forward to working closely with the Franklin Park Neighborhood Association, the park board and the community to provide a safe and enjoyable place where dogs can run freely off-leash and socialize with other dogs.”
Recent fundraising efforts could be shifted to Barker Park to help fulfill a significant component in the established master plan. Barker Park is a 26 acre piece of property that was generously donated to the Park District by the Paul Barker Trust with the intent to develop the land into a park. The Springfield Park District worked closely with the Franklin Park Neighborhood Association to create a master plan that meets the needs of the local residents. A dog park was included in a recent request from the Franklin Park Neighborhood Association as well as being included in the overall master plan for the park.
Franklin Park Neighborhood Association Board President Don Hunt commented “The Neighborhood Association is in full support of a potential dog park in the future Barker Park.”
