Meridian Township Large Dog Obstacle Course Project

Meridian Township Large Dog Obstacle Course Project

OKEMOS, MI - During the pandemic it has been hard to get out and exercise, but as restrictions loosen and as public spaces open back up it will be important to get back outside and exercising, especially for our animal companions.

Local resident and Eagle Scout Gryffin Porter shares this sentiment, as back in October of 2020 he proposed to the Meridian Township Board a project for a new dog obstacle course at the Large Dog Park located Central Park Drive, across from the Marketplace on the Green pavilion.

Porter’s project proposal included building ramps, balance boards, platforms, and other activities to help our canine companions get up and active. The Board found this idea to be appealing and beneficial for the community, and approved the project back on October 13th of 2020.

Porter has been raising money to help fuel this project, and so far has raised 2,000 dollars for supplies and equipment. If you wish to help support or volunteer to help the cause visit the gofundme, which will be linked down below

The project is expected to finish by September of this year.
