The Halloween Carnival hosted by the Fair Oaks Rotary Club and Fair Oaks Theatre Festival has been cancelled due to the projected rain. The Safe Halloween trick-or-treating with the Village Merchants will continue as scheduled from 11am-4pm.
The Phoenix Dog Park will be closing for the construction of a walking path and for winter maintenance beginning Monday November 3rd with a projected re-opening date of December 12th.
Dog park closures can be frustrating to regular users of the park. However, Phoenix Dog Park is a very heavily used park with ongoing maintenance and upkeep challenges. The park was built on soil that is mostly clay and rock – good for native oaks and grasses but not much else! This makes growing and maintaining healthy turf difficult and all but ensures we will have ongoing drainage problems. In addition, the park’s watering system is aging and subject to regular and costly vandalism by humans. As such, yearly closures for reseeding and major maintenance have become a fact of life.
During the closure period parks staff will be:
Rototilling and reseeding areas of the dog park as needed;
Performing maintenance and repair of portions of the irrigation system; and
Constructing the long planned for Walk Path Project at Phoenix Park.
The plan is to reopen the dog park as soon as the reseeded turf has taken hold and conditions are suitable for use by dogs and their owners.
We appreciate your understanding and patience during the park closure! During the closure period please check out the other great dog parks in the Sacramento area by going to YourSacParks.com
