AVILLA, IN — On Saturday, October 8th, the members of ReStore Avilla, Inc. (ReStore), will be hosting a grand opening ceremony, beginning at 11 a.m. at Ley Street Park, celebrating the completion of their dog park project.
During the ribbon-cutting ceremony, attendees and their canines have the opportunity to experience the amenities of the park and enjoy the separate play spaces for both small and large dogs.
The dog park, which is the first in Noble County, was instigated just over two years ago and has been made possible by generous equipment, labor, and materials in-kind donations, as well as monetary donations from area individuals and businesses. During fundraising efforts, Todd Carteaux, President of ReStore, announced that the highest donor for the project would be designated to name the park. That honor was given to Vinnie and Camille Crump of Avilla, who chose the name, “Crump’s Canine Corral’.
Crump’s Canine Corral is located beside Noble County Public Library – Avilla on Ley Street. Once the park is officially open, the Avilla Parks Department will take over ownership and maintenance. Normal park hours are from dawn to dusk, all dog owners must be attentive to their dog(s) while using the park, and no more than two dogs per handler at a time are allowed. A full list of rules will be posted at the park and are available online at avilla-in.org/dog-park.
Everyone throughout the county and surrounding area is invited to partake in the opening day celebration.
