Cook said she created an open Facebook group called "Dog Park for Logansport, IN" Wednesday that garnered nearly 160 members in its first day online.
Logansport Parks Administrator Jan Fawley said the parks and recreation department can still assist with the creation of a dog park while continuing to work to relinquish some of its properties in its efforts to cut costs.
"If we could work with an organization to do this, I think that would be our role," she said.
"I would love to see a dog park. It might take a couple years. It's not going to happen overnight."
