Message from the Directors

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.

Here's to a great summer season.

See you at the park.

 

WOOF!
