Dog Park Project
About this Project
As one of their major projects for 2021, the Orange County Parks & Recreation Department plans to install a dog park in a currently unused portion of Booster Park, located at 11177 Bloomsbury Road, Orange, VA 22960. Given its close proximity to the Orange County Airport and Skydive Orange, this dog park will be called “Skydog Orange Dog Park.” With the help of the Orange County Parks & Recreation Foundation, the Department intends to fundraise through 2021, begin construction in the winter of 2021, and open the park in Summer 2023. As planned, the park will feature four fenced fields with double-gate systems, allowing for the separation of small and large dogs and the resting of fields to allow grass regrowth.
"Our DogGone Fence" Memorial Signs
One of our fundraising efforts is the sale of memorial signs to be displayed on “Our DogGone Fence.” These signs will allow you to install a small memorial to a beloved pet along chain link fencing at Skydog Orange. Currently, they are planned to be metal signs approximately 6 by 12 inches, with information such as the dog’s name, information about its lifespan, a short remembrance message, and recognition of the individual/family/group that provided for the memorial. An optional inclusion is a full color image of the dog, see requirements below. We would like to have the dog park completed as soon as possible. The cost per sign is $50.
You may order your sign by clicking here (recommended), or you may download our order form and bring it into our office. For your sign to be on display for the grand opening of the dog park, your order needs to be completed by Sunday, May 21, 2023.
Payment must be made by cash or check only; checks should be made out to the OCPR Foundation. The presale period has ended, but shirts are still available for purchase at the Parks & Recreation office (11350 Porter Road Orange, VA 22960). Thanks to the generosity of our t-shirt vendor, we will be able to keep shirt prices the same as the presale period. Long sleeve shirts are $20 each, short sleeve are $15 each, available in adult sizes S-XXL (while supplies last).
Shirts are available for immediate purchase in our office, or download the order form to have them shipped.
