Monroe County Executive Adam Bello today announced a new dog park will be constructed at Webster Park along Lake Road in the Town of Webster. The project is being funded by a $250,000 grant secured by Assemblymember Jennifer Lunsford (AD-135).

“The addition of a dog park at Webster Park is the latest in our $16.6 million Go Outside Monroe Initiative – which is modernizing our entire parks system with fresh amenities that reflect the needs of our entire community,” said County Executive Bello. “Thank you to Assemblymember Lunsford and the Town of Webster for your partnership on this project.”

The 1.5-acre dog park will be a grass lot that includes features such as agility equipment and drinking stations. The park will be divided into two areas to separate larger dogs and smaller dogs. Construction is expected to be complete next summer.

Funding secured by Assemblymember Lunsford will also cover costs to repair and replace existing playground equipment near the future dog park.

“Dog parks are the kind of amenity that helps build community while ensuring the safety of our favorite furry residents,” said Assemblymember Lunsford. “Dog parks allow dogs and dog-owners alike to enjoy a leash free park experience. I am happy to have been able to provide state support for the construction of this new space.”

“Having a dog park is one of the most requested park amenities from our residents,” said Christopher Bilow, Commissioner of Parks and Recreation for the Town of Webster. “Being able to work with the County, who has a proven ability to safely manage dog parks, is a great opportunity to collaborate and bring this idea to fruition for our Webster residents.”
