Breaking news! Groundbreaking news that is!



Just over two years ago, many of you attended the first WOOF meeting to show your support for a dog park. Since then, WOOF members, the cities of Worthington and Columbus have all been hard at work helping to make that dream a reality.

It is my great pleasure to invite each and every one of you to the groundbreaking Ceremony for the new dog park at Godown Road on June 20, at 1:30 PM.

CIty staff and officials will be on hand and this is a great opportunity to show them how much you support the new dog park and appreciate their efforts.

Godown Park going to the dogs

Worthington's first dog park will have areas for small and large dogs to run and play, and benches for owners to sit and watch.

Plans for The Dog Park at Godown Road were unveiled Feb. 3 at a meeting at Linworth Baptist Church before a crowd of about 25 dog owners eager to see Worthington get a dog park of its own.

Actually, it will be shared with the city of Columbus, which will partner with Worthington to build and operate the park, which is owned by Worthington but located in Columbus.

It's Time To Celebrate


Tonight, in front of a standing room only crowd, by a unanimous vote, Worthington City Council approved a resolution to create a dog park in Worthington.  The goal will be to have a dog park up and running by the end of 2010. Can you already see the tails wagging?

Congratulations to all of you who have shown your support in so many ways and worked hard to make a dog park a reality!  And thank you, to all of you who came out tonight to the council meeting.  

Rover, rejoice: Dog park coming to Worthington
