Dog Park Closed 8/25-8/16

Message from Jeff Boyle, Park's Director:
The contractor will be oiling the road that goes through the sports complex on the afternoon of August 15 and will be chip sealing the road on the morning of August 16. The dog park will be closed mid-day on August 15 and will reopen around lunchtime on August 16th. If you could pass this along I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks, Jeff
