In 2014 the City of Lindsborg recognized a need for a dog park to be utilized by patrons in the community. With unforeseen circumstances and other city needs, the budget for the park was utilized for other community projects. A dedicated committee of community members helped to make this concept a reality with their own fundraising efforts, as well as collaboration with the community foundation.
The foundation awarded a grant to the city to purchase pergolas and benches for the facility. This project allows residents to exercise their dogs off-leash in town, in a safe and secure environment. "The area is a significant addition to the City of Lindsborg park system, providing a place for many dog owners to gather and socialize," said grantee Hayley Samford.
