Hudson Is Getting a Dog Park!

The dogs of Hudson (and their humans) have been waiting patiently for a dog park, and the time has finally come!

Joey is ecstatic over the news that soon the joy of running off leash in a dog park will no longer be ten-mile drive away but only a quick jaunt across town to Charles Williams Park. The northern edge of Hudson's newest park, located at the eastern end of Mill Street, has been designated as the location for Hudson's long-awaited dog park.

The GoFundMe campaign launched in June 2014 raised enough money for 300 linear feet of fencing, to create a dog park with an area of 5,000 square feet. That's just a quarter of the size of the dog park closest to Hudson, the one in Palatine Park in Germantown. The directors of the Mrs. Greenthumbs Hedge Fund--dog lovers all--have kicked in enough to buy 200 more linear feet of fencing, which will more than double the size of the park. But that still falls short of what is considered the minimum desirable size for a dog park.

A new GoFundMe campaign has been launched to raise more money to buy more linear feet of fencing and further increase the size of the dog park. When it comes to dog parks, the bigger, the better. The challenge is to raise enough money in the next two weeks to make our dog park worthy of our loyal and beloved four-legged companions. Click here to help.
