Directions to "FIDO's Backyard": From I-79 in Fairmont, West Virginia, use Exit 136. Follow signs to East Marion Park. Proceed into the park and look for Pavilion #5 signs across the parking lot and to the left. Follow that road to the end at the softball field parking lot. On the far left, a road will lead you around and down the hill behind the ball field. You will come to the parking area and the entrance to the dog park.

Summer 2009

Work has been mostly completed at the dog park site as MCPARC and FIDO volunteers cleared away trees and brush. We hope to have the area fenced sometime in July when the fencing materials are received. Once the signage is obtained and posted, the park will be open for public use.

A FIDO meeting will be held in the future in order to plan for an official opening ceremony. Thank you to all of our supporters as we continue to move forward with the dog park!

How are things going with the FIDO park? I'm moving to Fairmont around 9/1 with my furkid Sadie (an Elkhound) and I would love to know more about the park. Email me if you'd like. It's livinglikescarlett at gmail dot com.

Thanks!!
