FRAMINGHAM – Framingham Parks and Recreation Commission discussed the possibility of a City of Framingham dog park at its meeting this week.
Framingham Parks and Recreation Director James Snyder shared that the City is still searching for a suitable location for a dog park.
Snyder said there is the possibility for a grant and his office is looking into the grant.
Currently, a City of Framingham dog park has no dedicated city funds.
In 2015, Shannon Stevens of Framingham organized a group called FramBark to try to create a dog park in Framingham.
They had hoped to petition Town Meeting in 2016 and 2017 to approve funds for a dog park in the Town of Framingham. They were not successful in the venture and Framingham eventually voted to become a City.
FramBark has a Facebook page and has more than 200 members. They recently elected a new Board of Directors. They are:
- Jessica Helgeson – President
- Caelli Craig – Secretary
- Samantha Craig – Treasurer
- Mike Henry – Director
- Linda Webster – Director
- Stevens – Director
