Community project to clean up the Eastside Off Leash Dog Area

Friday, January 13, 2017

Drainage at the dog park has been an issue for a long time.
The park had to be closed for a while in 2015 while the City
used pea gravel and sand to deal with the flooding.

Taryn Maxwell was looking for a community project - and her dog gave it to her.

I was looking for things I could do to improve my community in my spare time and when my soaking wet dog jumped in my lap at the dog park, it hit me.
We need to fix up this park. 

"We're going to work on the puddle problem, add more gravel, and give the dogs more to do."

It's a great area for the dogs to run - Gabriel is having fun in the rain
but Taryn wants to provide a playground for dogs.

"Our goal is to buy gravel, sand, play equipment, and installation materials to get the job done. After we have the supplies, we'll hold a work party."

**This project has been approved by the city**

"Do what you can, donate, share, show up for the work party!"

"We love our dogs and think they deserve the best. So come on Shoreline, let's get to work!"

The park is located at 1902 NE 150th St, Shoreline 98155 on the Fircrest campus on 15th NE.

Taryn has set up a GoFundMe page with a funding goal of $6,000.
