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.
