Dogwood Acres

A Dog Park for Sterling!

The mission of Dogwood Acres is to create a safe space for our four-legged friends to run and play off-leash. Dogwood Acres will be a fenced-in dog park within the city of Sterling, IL where people & their dogs can socialize and exercise in a clean & safe environment.

Phase 1 of our fundraising effort is to raise $50,000. This money will be used for our most basic necessities – fencing & sidewalks. If we can do this by the end of August, we can break ground this FALL!! We can do this!
