Urbana Dog Park
Join the Corgi Convention!
Enjoy an afternoon of Corgi Capers! Your Corgi can run, play, and socialize off leash in this 10 acre fenced space featuring a shaded area in the park’s center and lots of open meadow for running. The park has a six-foot-high perimeter fence and double-gated entrances for safety. There are also benches, a water fountain, a rinsing station, and a port-a-potty on site.
Other non-corgi family dogs are welcome to join the group. Bring your cameras, lawn chairs, tennis balls, sunscreen, dog towels, etc. Whatever you do, don’t forget the Corgis!

Very excited about this... I think we might come. Leena's much less shy now, and I think she'll love it.
Nevermind. My wife has a college event she has to work at. Hope everyone has fun.
YEAH!!! An actual corgi outing that we can come too! We will most definately be there, unless something major comes up. Pancake and Twiggy will love to meet all the local corgis!!!
Amie Jo, I am glad that I will get to meet you. I remembered that you wanted a Corgi event closer to Danville. Several people have told me that they wish there was something in Central Illinois. This is kind of a test. If we get a good turn out, we can do it again and again. I am leaving flyers at various places around Champaign/Urbana too. Plus, I sent flyers to a few people I have met in my area that have Corgis. You can spread the word in Danville, too. If you know any Corgi people, invite them.
If you would like to send me the link for the flyers I will get the word out around here as much as I can! Send it to firstname.lastname@example.org! Thanks!!!
Sent the Flyers. Let me know if there is a problem opening the attachment. I had one friend that could not open hers because her work computer was so old. If there is a problem, I could snail mail them to you.
Please hang them anywhere you think someone might notice. I also left a couple on neighbors' doors that I knew had Corgis. Thanks for helping.
I would love to attend... but already have plans that weekend.
We had 23 Corgis attend CORGI-CON!
The weather was beautiful and everyone enjoyed a day with their Corgis and families.
If you missed it, I hope to do it again next May.
I will keep an ear out. Sorry I missed it, but I am so glad it was a success. I hope to see you guys next year!
Here is a link to the pictures that my husband and I took at CORGI-CON.
Looks like you guys had fun! It kind of works out that I had plans, Camden developed an eye infection the Wednesday before the gathering. I hope I'll see you guys next year!
