Woodglen Vista Dog Park to Close for Maintenance

Thursday, May 9, 2013

The 1-acre off-leash dog area at Woodglen Vista Park will close for five weeks beginning Monday, May 13 to allow public service workers to aerate the turf and re-seed the area with summer grass. It will reopen on June 18.

During the closure, pet owners who enjoy off-leash activity will be able use the Woodglen Vista Park baseball field
Monday through Friday from Dawn to 3pm* and Saturdays and Sundays from Dawn to Dusk* or the fenced dog park at Mast Park open daily from dawn to dusk.
“As any dog owner knows, dogs are tough on grass,” said Community Service Director Bill Maertz. “ But that beautiful green lawn is what makes this park so special. So we’re going to close it for maintenance to keep it that way.”

The Woodglen Vista Dog Park is one of the rare off-leash dog parks in the county with a turf (grass) surface.

Reminders to dog owners to pick up after your pet. Pets must be on a leash at all times in any city park, except when in designated off-leash areas. For a list of the designated off-leash areas and hours click here.
