Barks on Tap at Seger Park!

This summer, you can find the popular Parks on Tap traveling beer garden's junior version- BARKS on Tap at Seger Dog Park. On select Fridays (6/2, 7/7, 8/4) from 5-8:30 pm head to the park and grab a beer with your pup (or solo!) A percentage of the proceeds will go to bettering Seger Dog Park and it's a great opportunity to meet some other park-goers. Bring ID if you wish to drink and please keep a close eye on your dog! See you there! 

Winter Refurfacing

It will be warming up this weekend and we are going to take advantage of the increase in temperatures to do our winter resurfacing. We have found a supplier for large playground-grade mulch chips that will be delivered this weekend. Any volunteers that are free on Saturday morning to help us spread the mulch in the park would be very welcome and appreciated! We will start at 8 am and have rakes, shovels, and wheelbarrows on hand. If you're on Facebook, please let us know you're coming here.

This will be an initial step to stabilize the surface for the winter. Once Spring arrives, we plan to do a more thorough overhaul. This will involve removing the fabric that continues to be exposed and any old and broken down mulch beneath the surface. Going forward, we will then continue to do periodic cleaning and adding of mulch chips as they degrade. We will let everyone know when we have a date for this Spring excavation of the surface and hope that folks will be able to help us out!

December Member of the Month

Congrats to Maria, our Member of the Month! Here is her bio:

I'm a native of Philly and have been living in the Washington Sq. West area for 15 years. A lifelong animal lover, I have three dogs and one cat (who thinks he’s a dog). I'm a professional dog walker, so my home is often filled with not only my own pets but also an ever-changing array of guest dogs. Before I was a dog walker, I was a massage therapist for 14 years and managed a local day spa for 5 years. I've been an avid supporter of the dog park ever since it officially opened in 2007.

I would like encourage everyone who uses the park to become a member and get involved. Also, never forget the unwanted animals that are in our local rescues...please volunteer, donate, be a foster and/or adopt these amazing animals who simply need our love and help.

Holiday Party Rescheduled

The weather outside on Saturday will be frightful, so we'll celebrate delightfully on Sunday instead!

Many of you have probably looked at the forecast for Saturday and discovered that we're expecting more snow. Given the likely weather situation, we are rescheduling the Holiday Party for Sunday, December 15 starting at 11am. We'll have the same great goodies, including pictures with a Santa Paws played by Isaiah Zagar, just a day later! We hope we see you all there!
