Canal Run Dog Park
The Miamisburg Community Foundation is pleased to announce Canal Run Dog Park as a signature project for the community.
The dog park is located in Community Park, 550 S. First Street, Miamisburg and is now open! The dog park features three separate, fenced-in areas based on dog size. These areas include a large dog section for dogs 30 pounds and up, a small dog section for dogs 0-30 pounds and a section for all dog sizes to play together. The park also features multiple dog waste stations, a water fountain for dogs and their humans, bench seating, a tunnel for dogs to play in, natural log benches, a covered pagoda, shade structures and stage for events. More information on Canal Run Dog Park may be found here:
The goal of the Foundation is to fund the construction of the Dog Park with private donations while the City of Miamisburg Parks & Recreation Department has committed to annual maintenance once construction is complete. Phase two of construction will begin next year and include a memorial brick pathway with engraved bricks, dog agility equipment and more.
The Miamisburg Community Foundation is currently seeking private donations to support the building of the dog park. You can help through sponsorships, donated dollars or our commemorative brick program. Donations can be made online. Be sure to designate your dollars toward the Miamisburg Dog Park.
Kneeling by the Miami
It has been nearly fifteen years since a group of local citizens and business leaders created Miamisburg’s signature statue, Kneeling by the Miami that is located outside of the City of Miamisburg’s Civic Center First Street entrance.
Over the course of several years, our kneeling ancestor collected much of our areas native limestone. As one of the original overseers of the statue project, Bob Bell, agreed to step up to ensure our sculpture was cleaned properly before the Bicentennial Celebration.
By using the Miamisburg Community Foundation’s 501(3) (c) status, Bell secured private funding for this job. In mid-October, the statue was restored and once again, represents our City’s namesake tribe, the Miami.
Brick Paver Fundraiser
The Miamisburg Community Foundation will be selling commemorative brick pavers to place within the dog park located in Community Park, 330 S. First Street, Miamisburg.
The bricks will be 4” x 8” or 8“ x 8” concrete, engraved with your custom message with or without art. Custom pavers can express many sentiments, such as, in memory of a loved one or pet, honoring a person’s military service, or simply a representation of your business or family.
