April 2018 Newsletter

1.   Spring Clean-up and Fund Raiser
Mark your calendars for May 5 and 6 as the dog park will have its Spring clean-up and fund raising weekend.  Come show your support by participating in the clean-up starting at 10:00 both mornings. We will be spreading mulch around the trees, picking up trash and doing other tasks.  We will also be collecting donations both days and will have the new dog park magnets available. You can also make a donation anytime at our web site: http://www.ShirlingtonDogs.org

2.   We are in need of clean plastic bags such as those your newspaper comes in, for use in picking up dog poop.  Please bring the bags to the park and place in the two green mailboxes at either end of the park.  If they are already full, please place in an outer bag and hang it on the shed door handle.

3.   This is a good time to check to make sure your dogs are up to date on their rabies and other vaccines and they have their current license before bringing them to any dog park.  There is a link for info at our site under “Resources”.

4.   Please be advised the Shirlington Dog Park closes 30 minutes after sunset.  Everyone and their dogs MUST be out of the park by then.  The closest dog park that has lights and is open later is Ft Bernard, which is up the hill on Walter Reed Drive.  See the link on our site for details and list of other dog parks that are open later.
