Channel two shared the news today,

There were smiles and woofs all around as the ribbon was cut Thursday morning to open the first dog park in Niagara Falls. The canine playground is located in the DeVeaux Woods State Park where a comfort station was opened as well.

So, how did we pay for Fido's playground?

Federal funds were used to purchase and install fencing and other furnishings at the park. Under an agreement between state parks and the city, both will share duties of maintaining the site.
