Town of Owego, NY (WBNG Binghamton) A dog park for both big and small could find space at Owego's Hickories Park.

Members of the Owego Dog Owners Group, or ODOG, are setting out to build a dog park.

The idea came from member Wendy Post and businessman Adam Weitsman.

Both lost their siblings to cancer and found a common interest was a great love of dogs.

Members of ODOG have been working with the Town Board to not only find a proper place for the park, but one large enough for a big group of dogs and owners.

"We've got a section for large dogs and a section for small dogs. It's not quite three acres, but I think it's pretty close," Post said.

Members of ODOG presented their proposal to the Town of Owego Board Tuesday. The board will now have to schedule a vote.
