Throw us a bone!
Work on Phase II construction is expected to begin in late October, 2020 and should be completed by the end of the calendar year. This will include installation of a paved entryway, water fountain, water feature, small dog area and benches. Thank you to all who have donated to date! In the last six years, we raised nearly $275,000. Unfortunately, bids came in considerably higher than expected during these times of COVID and we do not have enough money to complete the entire project. As such, we must now begin fundraising for Phase III, which will include the canine artificial turf play fields, outcropping stone, mulch, and other landscaping features. We also need funding for continued maintenance which is provided entirely by volunteer efforts. Whatever you can give would be greatly appreciated. No amount is too small. With your help, we will reach our goal one dollar at a time. However, we have set up the following fundraising tiers to encourage you to donate as much as you can. Please note that the Horner Park Advisory Council is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and your donations will be tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
