Poop-a-poo-looza Work Party

Written By: on March 25, 2018

We are planning a Poop-a-poo-looza and work-party to do spring-time cleanup maintenance on the park – On Sunday, April 29, 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.]

Survey for Chelmsford Dog Park : Perceived Benefits and Successes

Written By: on January 2, 2018

A few months ago, we attended a discussion group sponsored by The Stanton Foundation on dog parks here in Massachusetts.
I am asking our park patrons from all over (and non-park patrons who are Chelmsford residents) if you all would take a few minutes to answer the survey questions.
This survey is anonymous. If we can get a valid sample size, the answers may be used in future studies and planning for dog parks.
