Our community needs a PetSafe dog park!

Welcome to the Wallingford, CT Bark For Your Park Page! The Wallingford Dog Lover's Association has been working toward a safe, fenced-in dog park for over a year, and we finally have a location!

Wallingford, Bark Bark Bark. A couple of towns with votes greater than ours say IF they win, someone will give them land. Wow, we have already committed to the park and have zoning and wetlands approvals. Please keep barking, we have a chance!!!

Thanks Robin for your comments! Wallingford Dog Lovers Association has been working on the park for nearly 2 years and we hope to see it happen this summer. Not only will it be a Pet Safe playground for our doggies, but it will be a nice asset to our small town! Thanks for the contest!!!
