Upper Douglass Dog Park -Park Opening Postponed

Saturated lawn

Due to unforeseen drainage issues, the park will not open on Saturday, November 9, 2013. Up until earlier this month, the lawn had been growing evenly throughout the park; however, the south edge of the park is saturated with moisture causing the lawn to thin in the shaded areas.  Given the popularity of the park, it is critical that all irrigation and drainage issues are resolved prior to opening. If the park were to open now, the southern section would not recuperate from the visitor traffic.

We are currently addressing the unanticipated problem and will provide continued updates. In the meantime the park will remain closed.

We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your continued patience through this park improvement.
