Who Are We?

The Friends of Ellicott was originally started a few years ago as an informal small volunteer group of  Park users/dog walkers, who wanted to see the Park better utilized and improved upon.  

In 2013, we formed a “not for profit”, allowing the Friends of Ellicott, Inc to have a status to better interact with Erie County, NY the owner of Ellicott Island Park.

 The main goal of the Friends of Ellicott, Inc was to work with Erie County Park officials to provide for an environmentally sensitive off leash dog park.  

With the support of many, an agreement between the Friends of Ellicott and Erie County has been attained, effective Jan 1, 2014, the Ellicott Island Bark Park is an official off-leash dog park.

Hello everyone! Well to start with some background I was raised in Western New York and went to college at the University of Buffalo. There I was Captain of the Men's Rowing team. This was my first introduction to Ellicott Island as I rowed past it every morning at 5am and would day-dream how nice it would be to take my own dog there sometime in the distant future. Once I graduated I stayed in Western New York and this is when I rescued Coco and started coming to the Ellicott Island Park. Ever since then and for the last 5 years I have visited the park constantly be it spring, summer, fall or winter. Nothing has made Coco as happy as her visits to the Island, and for me the chance to 'unplug" myself from technology and enjoy nature & everyone else at the park has been a godsend. I really think what we have here is something special, and I hope I can help grow our community for a long time to come. With my work history in the Technology / Software field I will be running our social media and online presence along with our Secretary duties. The park has given Coco and I so much happiness over the years, and I hope to give whatever I can back.
