Best to all in the new year ahead.
Thanks to all those who came to the 2010 Santa at the Dog Park. A dozen dogs and lots of happy humans! Click on the link below to go to our Flickr page to see all the photos that were taken of your dog — feel free to download any of the images.
We had 16 dogs and 34 owners at last Saturday’s Howl-o-ween at the dog park. Pictures of all the great costumes to be posted shortly!
Dog Park Friends:
We regret to inform you that the 2010 Dog Splash has been canceled.
This is due to a City Park situation beyond our control, as well as the exceptionally poor quality of the lake water when tested yesterday.
All those who registered and paid in advance will have their money refunded via PayPal.
We are deeply grateful for your support of our fundraising efforts for the Dog Park, and even though the Splash won’t be happening we are looking ahead to a terrific Halloween Doggie Costume Parade, as well as our second annual visit from Santa for portraits at the park at holiday time.
Thank you for your patience and understanding. Please continue to check our website for event updates.
The Dog Park Volunteer Board:
If you go to the Dog Park and see something out of place, or see aggressive dogs, or objects in the park that shouldn’t be there, PLEASE let us know. At this time of year it’s difficult to monitor the park as closely as we would like, so we’re counting on folks who use the park to keep the Advisory Board updated. Write to us to report any problems. Thanks.
The new year has brought with it some seriously cold weather which may have limited your use of the dog park. Don’t worry: once the warmer weather comes, we will be busy with upgrades and events. In the planning stages now is a public art project, which you’ll hear more about in coming weeks.
Regarding benches: thank you to everyone who has offered to donate a new bench to the park. We are currently developing an “adopt a bench” program and will publicize it in the spring. In the meantime, please do not bring plastic chairs or other pieces of outdoor furniture to the dog park.
On the road again: We are working with the City to get the turnaround area in front of the dog park paved for this spring. This will be a huge help when it comes to the rainy season and mud. Keep your fingers crossed!
This photo says it all. Thanks to all who came to visit Santa at the Peekskill Dog Park back in December, and for your contributions to our canned dog food drive. It was a great day.
