Restore Avilla, a 501c3 non-profit, and community volunteers are working to install a dog park near the Noble County Public Library Avilla branch. With the mission to revitalize the historic downtown in Avilla, Restore Avilla has added assets to the community such as Heritage Park. Restore Avilla’s vision for this park is to create a welcoming and inclusive atmosphere for dog owners to come, socialize, and exercise their dogs.
Dog parks allow off-leash, enclosed play with dogs of similar sizes. Avilla’s park will be equipped with separate play areas for large and small dogs as well as seating areas for dog owners. With no dog park in Noble County, Restore Avilla believes that this asset will bring people from all corners of the county together.
Restore Avilla’s board president, Todd Carteaux says, “A dog park will help improve the quality of life for you and your dog. Although this park will be located in Avilla, we envision this as an opportunity for Noble County communities to come together and engage with one another.”
Restore Avilla is proud to already have the Noble County Public Library, the Town of Avilla, and the Avilla Parks and Recreation Department as partners in this project. “Now we are looking for community partners,” Carteaux said.
A GoFundMe campaign is currently open with the opportunity for community members to invest in this project.
