After so many years of pleading and working to raise the money to build a leash free dog park, Sault Ste. Marie opened the gates to its first. The problem as seen by some is the location. They think that it should have been centrally located so that more people and their dogs could have access to it.
The Sinclair family generously donated the land so the price was right. The people that wanted it the most managed to raise $25,000 and the city came up with the rest.
The future will tell whether it will be a success or not and in the mean time, the dogs will be the true judge on whether it is or not. They will have the freedom to run and play as they wish, something that has escaped them until now.
