Who is responsible for the park maintenance and cleaning?
The committee is responsible for ensuring that the park is clean.
In addition to monthly deep cleanings, which involve bleach and changing out of pea gravel, replenishing bags, members of the DFA committee are required to clean up after dogs/owners who haven’t done so on a daily basis. It is also up to the committee to remind people who use the dog park to clean up after their dogs. Moreover, it is the role of the DFA
to remind people to clean up after their dogs and to get the proper license.
There are also 3-4 power washings of hard surfaces required per year.
Right now, without a DFA, users of the park with dogs who leave a mess put a burden on the
staff of the park and the volunteer members of the park advisory council, who clean the park
once monthly from spring to fall. Having a dog park with an active community will help
increase accountability for having the park cleaned more regularly.
