MAGNOLIA MANOR PARK OFF-LEASH AREA UPDATE
Earth Day Work Party! Pitchforks and Shovels and Rakes, oh my! Come join us as we sling chips and move gravel to pretty up our Off Leash Area (OLA) for Earth Day! Sunday, April 21st from 1-3 pm. During the work party, the OLA will be CLOSED to all but work party participants and their dogs.
Calling All Team Members: Let’s Team Up!
Our Goal: Good stewardship for the off-leash area at Magnolia Manor Park! Help support the stewards of this dog park by joining the support team. At least 10 people are needed to share the load. We only need a few more to round out our Team!
If you use the OLA, care about the OLA and or are neighbors of the OLA, please volunteer (use the general contact form here).
Magnolia Manor Park Off-Leash Area is in its probationary period for 18 months (until Spring, 2014). (All new dog parks go on probation.) The majority of the OLA users are responsible dog owners who respect the park and the neighborhood. However, a few users may be jeopardizing the future of this OLA.
The OLA needs a support team of 10 people to help community bonding among park users. Possible activities include owner education, dog contests, potlucks, fun training events, etc. Re-educate the minority who aren’t aware about their impact on the neighborhood. This is your park!!
Currently the “missing piece,” an 18,000 sq ft SW corner of the park linking the OLA and the P-patch is under consideration. This would include a paved path between the areas and a re-vitalization of the north part of MMP. These areas are for people and leashed dogs. It is vital for the continuation of the Off Leash Area that dogs are kept on leash while outside the OLA.
