drive­way – I didn’t mind that, but along the streets there are cars, trucks and no chance to so­cial­ize,” ex­plained El­iz­a­beth Os­tiguy, one of the Ayer’s Cliff res­i­dents who be­gan the dog park ini­tia­tive three years ago along with Ash­ley Lang, Lu­cie Mail­loux, Peter McHarg and the late Dr. Por­lier. “We put up a pe­ti­tion and got about a hun­dred and fifty sig­na­tures. My son, Tom Red­path, and I were look­ing for land in town, then the town found the land for the park. We also had a bench do­nated by the Lit­tle fam­ily, in mem­ory of their dog, Zipper.”

The park is open to all lo­cal dogs, as long as their mas­ters fol­low all of the rules, which are posted at the park, and re­main with their dogs at the park. “It’s not just nice for the dogs to so­cial­ize, but for the peo­ple to so­cial­ize, too,” added Mrs. Os­tiguy.
