Heavy use of the new dog parks at Southeast Clarke Park compacts the
soils at the entries and takes a heavy toll on grass and other natural
ground cover. To address this issue, the dog park was designed with 3
areas which are rotated periodically allowing crews to conduct
remediation and giving the natural environment time to recover.
Crews will reopen Area 1 and close Area 3 of the Dog Park on
Monday, August 1 as we continue this regular rotation to preserve and
maintain this highly popular facility. Once new grass has fully
established, crews will once again rotate area closings. Area closings
will continue to rotate periodically to allow ongoing maintenance of all
three Dog Park areas.
