Dan Cassuto from KING 5 reported yesterday that a Stanwood teenager is building a dog park in Stanwood on Camano Island entirely on his own.
Landon McInelly decided to build it for his Eagle Scout project. He lobbied for the park at a city council meeting and convinced local businesses to donate all the materials.
“I had to go to city council and ask if I was as able to do this, and explain what I was doing,” McInelly told Cassuto. “When I was done it was almost an immediate yes. They liked it.”
And he doesn’t even own a dog!
Thank you to Landon for selflessly taking the initiative on this project. His dog park is going to make a lot of dogs and their people extremely happy.
