The park is currently: CLOSED 

Winter Prep Work Party

We are planning a work-party to do autumn cleanup and pre-winter maintenance on the park – On Saturday, November 17, 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:

  • General clean up of trash in the parking lot, along park borders and inside park.
  • Rake leaves
  • Rake wood chips off of path and back onto slope
  • Put another layer of mulch in the “pee-circles”.
  • Fill various holes around the park
  • Trim brush and mulch the area around the dog park sign.
  • Trim brush in the Training Area.
  • Trim the grass around the fences.
  • Pull weeds from the mulched slope.
  • Finish cleaning/storing tents from Howl’ween
  • Move planters to area behind shed
  • Collect solar lights from planters, into shed
  • Add more RAP to the All-Dog entrance and exit.
  • possibly (if materials arrive): Dig the area for the sand/digging-strip on the All-Dog side.

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

  • shovels, leaf and lawn rakes
  • weed trimmer
  • hedge trimmer
  • wheelbarrows
  • large rocks (the larger the better)
