A Dog’s Eye View: What’s up with the Chelmsford Dog Park?

Please thank Anna B. for getting me off my butt to tend to my blog. There are many things happening around Town (as always). Some days I feel like a squirrel and all the nuts are across the busy street.

But back to Anna’s inquiry…”so how’s the Dog Park Plan coming?”

After four years of looking at multiple sites all over Town, I am happy to report that at this spring’s Town Meeting, Warrant Article 23 will seek to designate a two acre area of 54 Richardson Rd. for use as a Dog Park.

A Dog’s Eye View: The latest in Local Dog News

In spite of Mother Nature’s latest shenanigans, the Chelmsford Dog Association is preparing for Spring.

First up, is the Chelmsford Spring Town Meeting, which starts on April 29. The Spring Town Meeting Warrant is now signed by the Board of Selectmen. Article 23 will designate an area of 54 Richardson Rd to be used as a dog park. Article 29 will allow off-leash dogs in an area designated by the Town. The Chelmsford Dog Association is asking supporters for a dog park in Chelmsford to let their Town Meeting Representatives know that having a public dog park is a desired project, and to ask them to vote in favor of these two articles. Once these steps are complete, the group can finally work on building the park. They’ll be asking for lots of help then. Thanks to all of you for getting the word out. Please feel free to ask questions-if I don’t know, I’ll find out! Thank you-on behalf of the Chelmsford Dog Association.

Post July 4th Observations

This year’s July 4th preparations were the busiest I’ve had in a long time. Thanks to everyone who stopped by the Chelmsford Dog Association tent at the Country Fair, and thanks to the volunteers that staffed it. The early morning rain cooled the pavement enough that we were able to have Violet (a lab-whippet mix) and Minnie (a pitbull/boxer mix) walk with us this year. Lucy (a rottweiler) decided it was a better idea to hang out in the back seat of Lee & Rosie Marchand’s Cadillac.

Well, we had a good night down in Chelmsford Center tonight!
There was nice weather, lots of people and lots of dogs.

We’ll be back there tomorrow morning (July 4th) and some of us will be walking in the parade as well.

So come on by the booth if you have any questions about the Chelmsford Dog Association, our plans for the dog park or you just want to stop by and say hi.

Thank you, Everyone

On behalf of the Chelmsford Dog Association, I would like to thank everyone in the community who is helping us with our goal to build a Dog Park for Chelmsford. A special thanks goes to Countryside Veterinary Hospital for hosting our Flea Market in May and to Walgreen’s Pharmacy for sponsoring their Second Annual Dog Rally on June 9. These two events raised just over $1300.00, which will be put toward supplies and equipment for the future park.
