Dog Park Closed For Construction

Featured

Construction is officially underway and will take approximately six to eight weeks.  Please keep checking our Facebook, Instagram and/or this Website for updates.  We will do our best to keep you informed. We ask that you kindly respect the closure signs and also respect city and park ordinances which prohibit off-leash dogs in other areas of the park or on the tennis courts.

Waiting won’t be easy, but you will have an autumn red brick paved entryway, a drinking fountain for people and for pets, a water play area complete with a water-spraying red fire hydrant, a separately fenced off small dog area, and benches to look forward to.  Because we did not have enough funding, the turf play fields and other landscaping and amenities will have to wait. Note that we are still taking donations to that end: Venmo, Paypal, Mailing a Check and other options for donating can be found here. Thank you for your patience and understanding throughout this process. Stay well.
