Fence Depot Owner John Locke hoping to open Cornwall Ontario’s First Dog Park for Autumn 2010!

Cornwall ON – With a little luck and a lot of hard work John Locke is hoping to have Cornwall Ontario’s first Dog Park in operation by the fall of 2010.    I had a chance to chat with the Fence Depot store owner about his two acre project on Pitt Street in the north end of Cornwall.

He envisions a member based Dog park with its own splash pool for dogs, and would feature a secure environment for not only area dogs, but for his park becoming an attraction to Cornwall for travelers coming off nearby Highway 401.

Dog owners would pay a yearly fee to have 24/7 access to the park to help cover the cost of maintenance and adding features.  There would also be options for non-members.

John recently chatted with a few Cornwall City Councilors who were very encouraging as the City would not have to write any cheques to help pay for the $40,000.00 project.

For more information contact John at Fence Depot, 3045 Pitt Street or you can call the store at 613.932.0717

  1. The only thing John Locke appears to care about is getting his name in the media and making money off of other people’s loves and hates. Any man who tries to drum up business for his fencing business by hosting a barbaric coyote and wolf hunting contest shouldn’t be allowed within 50 feet of anybody’s dog. Shame on you John Locke and Fence Depot!

  2. It’s a good store to stay out of. Animal hunting, sheesh, whats next?
