Phase 3 Bricks have been installed!

The brick order last year was delayed because of the pandemic, and then the early snow and odd winter weather -- and then continued weather patterns into the spring -- delayed the installation. However, the bricks are now installed!  Many thanks to Matt Kohl for doing the brick laying.

New Survey for Massachusetts Dog Parks: Usage, Perceived Benefits and Successes

In 2017-2018, a version of this survey was conducted specifically for the Chelmsford Dog Park. The information gathered was beneficial toward guiding the goals of the CDA in the development of the Chelsmford Dog Park. We're now re-running the survey to gather results from a wider audience and for a number of different town dog parks in the state. We are interested in finding out about your perceptions of your local dog park and other area dog parks.
