I have started planning a Corgi get together (no picnic) in Urbana. Just got the OK from the park district today. I wanted to know if you were still on MyCorgi and if you have collected any names of Corgi people in your area.
I wrote the woman from the Normal Park Distrct. She said there is no park at Ironwood. Read below....
There WAS one planned to be in Ironwood Park. However, the Ironwood Neighborhood Assn. voted against it. The only Dog Park that presently exists that the Town of Normal maintains is the one in Maxwell Park. Next spring, an additional dog park will be completed and ready for use in Shepherd Park on Hershey and Shepherd Rd. Hope this helps clear up any confusion.
So, we could not count on a new one being finished in time. So it is Maxwell Park or nothing for now. I plan to check out the urbana one again, but that adds mor driving time for most people. B/N is more centrally located.
By the way, I contacted the Normal dog park online. The woman from the park district is named Karen Carrigan. She said that the park has no picnic tables. However, she said that it was OK if we brought our own EZ-Ups, tables, chairs, whatever.
I may have to check it out one day.
First, I am just trying to get ready for Sunday and then I going to a wedding the next weekind in the Chicago burbs. Perhaps my husband and I will take the dogs there one day for a romp.
