Dog Park Area 1 to Open/Area 3 to Temporarily Close for Rehabilitation

Facility 465/467 | Updated: 1:00 PM, July 31, 2016 | Posted: 9:00 AM November, 24, 2015


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.
