The park is currently: OPEN 

UPDATE: Poop-a-palooza and Spring Work Party

DUE TO THE SNOW AND MUD, POOP-A-PALOOZA AND WORK PARTY HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED TO APRIL 22 – NOTE THE CHANGED DATE!

We are planning a Poop-a-palooza and work-party to do spring-time cleanup maintenance on the park – On Saturday, April 22, 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:

  • Rake and pick up leaves out of the corners
  • Rake wood chips off of path and back onto slope
  • Mulch the area around the dog park sign and replant flowers in the garden there
  • Trim brush and stumps in the Training Area
  • General clean up of trash in the parking lot, along park borders and inside park.
  • re-organize the planters (some need gravel and soil, most need new plants)
  • Move planters back to their spots around the park
  • Replace the solar lights into the planters
  • Powerwash the shed corners, trash barrels, pavilion posts and hydrants
  • Replace the trash barrels around the park
  • Grind/sand the two “new” hydrants and re-paint them in Red and Silver
  • Sand and apply polyurethane to the wood of the kiosk cabinet.
  • Dig a sand-track on the all-dog side and edge with landscape edging
  • Other things that will occur to us between now and April

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

  • Large rocks to put in the park (the larger, the better)
  • Flowering plants for the planters and around the sign
  • Mulch for around the sign
  • Planting gravel for the planters
  • Planter soil for the planters

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

  • shovels, leaf and lawn rakes
  • chainsaw
  • hedge trimmer
  • wheelbarrows
  • power washer
