Last month, Cumberland resident Ashley Babikian started a petition to create a dog park in town on www. . The park would be an off-leash, free space where dogs can socialize with other dogs in the presence of responsible owners, Babikian said. As of last Friday, she had gathered more than 600 signa- tures. "This would bring a really great sense of community and get dog lovers together, get people who share that common interest together, and overall give the dogs a safe place to exercise and socialize with other dogs," said Babikian. Babikian is an employee at the CVS Health Corporate Office in Woonsocket and said she's never started a petition before. The idea popped into her head when she started bringing her own dog, Halligan, a young and energetic golden retriever, to a nearby dog part in Wrentham, Mass.
