Message from the Directors
As Pilgrim Bark Park is nearing
completion, there are some who have posed the question:
why are donations still necessary?
As many of you know, the
park was built solely on extensive fundraising
efforts and private donations. The park has not,
nor will it receive financial help through taxpayer
dollars. The Town assists only with trash removal.
Meanwhile, the annual operating budget to maintain
the park is approximately $15,000 which includes:
insurance, taxes and accounting, utilities (water
and electricity), poop bags, replacement sand,
pea stone, gravel in the parking lot, web hosting,
general landscaping and maintenance.
Please visit our website
to learn all the different ways you can give.
Pilgrim Bark Park is YOUR park and in order for
it to remain a safe and clean space for you
and our furry friends, please familiarize yourself
with the park rules. They were created to
provide the safest environment possible.
If you see someone breaking a rule, please bring
it to their attention. More times than not
they are unaware and would want to do the right
Just a reminder: Poop
bags are bought with your donations.
PLEASE take only what
you need while in the park.
Here's to a great summer
See you at the park.
