PLEASE VISIT OUR NEW SITE:
"A local group is hoping to build off of this legislation and is working to establish an off-leash park where pet guardians can take their dogs for exercise and socialization."
"Many people with physical disabilities and the elderly would greatly benefit by having a safe, contained area to take their dogs for exercise. Because of physical restrictions, many dog guardians cannot provide their dogs the level of activity they require and deserve."
"I want to be "Proud of Parma," but it is difficult when our leaders are not setting the example they should be. Please do the right thing and continue the celebration of our dogs — our best friends, our children. Establish a dog park in Parma!"
Dogs are family members, too!
"In 2005, the Parma City Council, led by now state Rep. Nicholas Celebrezze, drafted an ordinance that authorizes the mayor to establish a dog park. It appears several council members still support the ordinance today, but...that ordinance still sits in committee somehow, facing questions the drafters of the ordinance answered."
"Together, we can continue to work hard to ensure Parma remains a great place to live, work, and raise a family. And, yes, that includes our furry four-legged friends and their “guardians” who would certainly benefit from a centrally located dog park in Parma."
A Word From PADPA's President, Katie Liepold
The Parma Area Dog Park Association (PADPA) is alive and strong. Our furry family members deserve a place to play. A Parma Dog Park will promote healthy socialization between human and dogs alike. Contact us to get involved! Let's work on #MovingParmaForward!
"Dog parks are not a novel idea; they are springing up all over the country and gaining in popularity. Why is this? Because dog parks are not just for the dogs; the human connections formed are meaningful and allow people to feel a part of the community, and where there is connection there is far less apathy."
