Petition to build a fenced in area for dogs in the old ball field on Route 114 across from Patty's Place Restaurant. There is plenty of open space and it is not being used for anything else. It would only take a few chain link fences and a few garbage cans.
Off-leash dog areas, or dog parks, provide a community setting in which people can gather and socialize and where they can observe the interaction of groups of dogs at play. Dog parks the world over allow owners and their dogs to spend time together while the dog satisfies its cravings for canine play and companionship.
There are no dog parks or fenced in areas for pets to roam free in this area, and driving over 40 kms to the nearest one (Centennial Park) is a hassle.
The unconditional love of a companion animal is very beneficial for the elderly, many of whom are unable to properly exercise their dogs and who stand to benefit from taking their dogs to a dog park.
So if you would like to see an un-leashed dog park in Hillsborough, please sign this petition.

We, the undersigned, wish to propose using the old baseball field as an unleashed dog park, where our dogs can socialize and get exercise (which leads to a healthier dog in both mind and body).
The signatures will be gathered and presented to Hillsborough Village Council in the month of May.
