Bangor Dog Park expansion Bangor Dog Park expansion

BANGOR - The Bangor Dog Park is less than a year old and it's already looking to expand. The park located on Watchmaker Street has been a great spot for canines to socialize and exercise while their owners look on. Now, the nonprofit Friends of The Bangor Dog Park say they are ready to work on Phase II of the park. A spaghetti dinner and silent auction is planned for Thursday, Oct. 24 at the park in order to help defray the cost of the work needed on site.

"We have enough money to expand the large dog area hopefully before the snow flies," said Dawnette Carver, volunteer and member of Friends of The Bangor Dog Park. "This fundraiser will hopefully let us put in a training yard, so if you want to do some agility or even a little one-on-one with your dog if it's not socialized, you can."

Area businesses have donated everything from jewelry to heating oil to be auctioned off at this week's fundraiser. Carver said she is overwhelmed at all the support the park has received from animal lovers and dog owners alike.  

"The turnout has been terrific. I can't say enough. It brings tears to my eyes that people love it, but better than that, the dogs love it," she said. 

The dog park may be a great hangout for canines, but Carver said it has also been responsible for creating quite a few connections among pet owners.

"What a lot of people tell me is they run into people in Hannaford or in town somewhere and they'll say, 'Hey you're Molly's mom,' " Carver said. 

The Friends of The Bangor Dog Park hope even more connections are made at this week's spaghetti dinner and silent auction. The event gets underway at 6 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 24 at the former PAL building located on site at the dog park. A $5 donation is suggested. For more information, log on to
