The park is currently:  lot CLOSED pending plowing

July Work Party

We are planning a work-party to do  mid-year cleanup and maintenance on the park – On Saturday, July 14 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 wood chips off of path and back onto slope
  • Clean the front area, around the sign, of brush and weeds
  • Fill in various holes around the park
  • Trim brush and stumps in the Training Area
  • General clean up of trash in the parking lot, along park borders and inside park.
  • Refill the planters with flowers
  • Turn over and add mulch to the Pee Circles
  • Fix the nuts & bolts in the small trash barrels
  • Re-affix the trash cans to the posts (lower/more securely)
  • Hang the final trash can in the little dig side
  • Spread the RAP gravel around the main entrance
  • Resurface/add a layer to the pathway near the hill and at the entrance
  • Add RAP around the main area benches to reduce drainage problems
  • Hang a new box and stock the infoboxes in the Kiosk
  • Hang more solar spotlights
  • Mow
  • Cut the grass in the timeout Kennels
  • “whack” the grass around the fences
  • Move the “repair grassing” section to the next location
  • Repair the berm of RAP around the base of the fence
  • Other things that will occur to us between now and July

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
  • Mulch for the pee-circles

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

  • Shovels, leaf and lawn rakes
  • Hedge trimmers
  • Something to trim stumps
  • Rototiller
