Friends of Ybor, a 501c3, will cut the ribbon on their very first project December 17 from 10am-noon. The concept is a thoughtfully designed dog park and cafe space at the corner of 18th Street and 4th Avenue. Organizers wrote the following in their fundraising goals when the project was first announced:
“Our funding goal for the design, construction, and start up costs for the Ybor City Dog Park is $600,000. With your philanthropic participation, the Ybor City Dog Park will become an extremely attractive public amenity for our neighborhood!”
This dog park is situated next door to a new cafe nestled within an adjacent park – “this urban infill dog park will be a welcomed amenity for the neighborhood and for the city,” writes the Friends of Ybor organization.
Those interested in supporting the endeavor can do so on the organization’s website.
