The Lower Kinnear Off-Leash Area (aka Dog Park) opened back in February, and it’s been a great spot for Uptown and Queen Anne canines to frolic and play. However, dog parks don’t just regenerate – they require work from human overlords to keep them clean and freshened up.

That’s where you come in – volunteers are needed at a work party this Saturday, November 9th from 10am to noon. This operation is a human-only endeavor, as new wood chips will be spread about with shovels and the city’s heavy duty equipment isn’t dog-friendly.

Lower Kinnear Dog Park tug of warThe last work party was a party of only two, and that’s just not enough! Hey, it has a 10am start, a pretty reasonable hour for a Saturday, and your pup and others will benefit from the 2 hours you donate.

There’ll be coffee, water and lite bites for volunteers. Plus, you get to meet other dog park supporters and help get the park ready for our rainy season.

And note, the park is closed to pups during the work hours. But, after the work is over, the pups can roam freely on fresh wood chips in a safe environment!
