Woodglen Vista Dog Park to Reopen Friday

Wednesday, June 13, 2012

Green turf, a rare amenity at off-leash dog parks, will be available again to pet owners on Friday, June 15, at Woodglen Vista’s fenced-in dog park.

The nearly 1-acre dog park with a luxurious lawn has been closed the past six weeks to allow the grass to recover and for rehabilitative maintenance.

The grass was aerated, re-seeded, fertilized and treated for weeds. City workers also filled ruts and divots with top soil.

“We’d like to thank pet owners for their patience and allowing us to restore this popular
dog park to a more robust condition,” said Community Services Director Bill Maertz.  “In the future, closures will only occur as needed to allow the grass to recover so we can provide a quality experience for pets and humans alike.”

During the recent closure, dog owners were allowed to use the adjacent playing field during morning hours and were guided to Mast Park’s off-leash dog area in the afternoons.

Dog owners can help preserve the lawn by picking up after their pets and stopping animals from digging.  Click here to review dog park rules and regulations.
