It has been a long journey, and it's not quite over yet. The non-profit organization Toledo Unleashed has been working with City of Toledo leaders since 2009 to bring a dog park to their city.
On their Facebook page, Toledo Unleashed Dog Park explains the next steps:
“The lease for use of the land now goes to Mayor Bell. We anticipate Mayor Bell wants to sign and officially hand over rights to the land to our organization very soon.”
Once the lease is completed, Toledo Unleashed will begin accepting membership for the long-awaited dog park.
Toledo Unleashed continues to raise the funds needed to build the dog park. The group is run entirely by volunteers. If you would like to donate, go to their website, http://toledounleashed.org/.
On their Facebook page, they thank everyone for their support.
