My compliments to those responsible for setting aside an area for a Dog Park In Franklin. It's an ideal setting and has an area for both small dogs and larger non-vicious dogs. However, it seems few people are using the facility and dog owners I have spoken with do not know where it is or that there is even a special Dog Park. A lot of people do not read the local newspapers so have not been made aware of its location.
Having done a great deal of research on Dog Parks for my previous home in Florida, I have visited several successful Dog Parks, and there are several things that would make Franklin's "Bark Park" more successful. But these things need money and support.
First it needs a good sign on the main street in front of the entrance to the main park. I have offered to contribute to the sign and I am waiting for the official to provide me with an estimate.
