The Chelmsford Dog Park is located at: 52 Richardson Rd, North Chelmsford
will be closing shortly (at dusk)

End of Summer Work Party

We are planning a work-party and park cleanup to do maintenance on the park – On Sunday, September 24, from 8 till 12.

(The work party will happen in any weather less than a downpour.)

Please respond on the volunteer page or contact Will via email or on Facebook if you are interested in helping. (Do note, this does qualify as volunteer hours for high school students and the requirements for the National Honor Society.)

The park will be CLOSED for normal usage during this work-party, but volunteers can bring their dogs to hang out in the training area while we humans make the park nice for them (and us).  [One human will be asked to keep watch on the dogs while the others work – with trade-offs for breaks.]

Things that needs to get done:

  • MOW!!
  • Rake wood chips off of path and back onto slope
  • Weed the slope
  • Turn up the mulch in the area around the hydrants
  • Trim brush and stumps in the Training Area
  • Trim brush at the front of the park, around the sign
  • General clean up of trash in the parking lot, along park borders and inside park.
  • Re-level the dirt against the far fence line left from the scout projects.
  • Trim the grass in corners and along the fences
  • Weed the brick entrance
  • Plant 2 or more trees
  • Other things that will occur to us between now and the end of the month

Things we need people to donate, to help do this:

  • Large rocks to put in the park (the larger, the better)
  • Decorative (but solid) fencing (1-2 feet high) to edge the peninsulas in the parking lot (stop people from parking there)
  • Mulch (we can always use more mulch)

Things we need people to bring, to help do this:

  • shovels, leaf and lawn rakes
  • chainsaw
  • weed whacker(s)
  • hedge trimmer
  • wheelbarrows
  • Lawn mower(s)
