The park is currently: OPEN 

Summertime Work Party

We’ve got stuff to do!

We are planning a work-party to do  mid-year cleanup and maintenance on the park – As usual, the work party will be from 8am to noon – this time on Sunday, July 28

(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.]

  • Install the 2 additional large tires
  • Finish the replacement of latches on the various park gates
