Opening of Como Lake Dog Park – Buffalo Rising

On a recent nature walk along the Cayuga Creek Nature Trail, I came across the future Como Lake Dog Park. At the time, the Lancaster Unleashed, Inc., a 501(c)(3) organization, in conjunction with the Erie County Department of Parks, was looking for a presenting sponsor for the Bark Park, which has now come in the form of Cellino Plumbing & HVAC.

Thanks to the significant financial and in-kind boost of Cellino Plumbing & HVAC, the Bark Park has officially announced a Grand Opening scheduled for Saturday, October 9.

In total, the only Presenting Sponsor package includes:

  • Installing about $25,000 in drainage in the dog park
  • Buying and Installing a Dog Washing Station ($2,000+)
  • Donate $5,000 to use for future releases

“We are so grateful for all of our supporters, both companies and individuals,” said Mary C. St Mary, chairman of Lancaster Unleashed. “This is really a community effort, with too many people to list at the risk of leaving someone out. However, Luke Cellino and Cellino Plumbing really stepped up to support our efforts.

The opening of the Como Lake Bark Park is the culmination of 6 years planning, fundraising and hard work. The sponsorship presentation was key to completing the project as it encompassed many of the key elements needed to ensure the park would be successful in the eyes of dog owners and their four-legged friends.

“Cellino Plumbing & HVAC is grateful to be able to give back to the community. Having grown up in Lancaster with dogs I think the Bark Park will be a great asset to colleagues dog lovers and the community as a whole,” said Lucas Cellino, president of Cellino Sanitary & HVAC.
