Park now open
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.
