March 20th Volunteer Day Has Been Postponed

Due to predicted poor weather, we have postponed the March 20th volunteer day to paint the shade structures at the dog park.  We will reschedule to a day in mid to late Spring when the weather is warmer and dryer.  A notice will go out closer to that time.

Thanks to those who volunteered to help on March 20th.  We hope to see you on the new volunteer day.


Dog Park Volunteers Needed

Phoenix Dog Park users… We need your help! We aren’t asking for money this time, rather we are asking for a little bit of time and muscle. As you know the park will be shut down for the month of March starting on Monday for the Fair Oaks Recreation and Parks Department to do their annual turf maintenance (aeration, seeding, sprinkler maintenance).
On Saturday March 20 at 9am we are going to have a work party to prep and paint the 4 shade structures so that they look good for the upcoming summer months.
If you would like to get more involved in FORDOG, or just want to help make the park look a little better, please email us at with your name and the number of people you can bring to help. More hands mean less work …that includes teenagers who might have service requirements for Scouts or school or clubs.
We will have all the equipment that’s needed, just wear something that you can get dirt and paint on. If we can get enough volunteers we should be able to have all the work done by the early afternoon, but any time you can spare that day will help.
This is a HUMAN ONLY event. The park will still be closed to dogs.
We hope to hear from you soon and see you on March 20.

Fair Oaks Dog Park will be closed in March

The Phoenix Dog Park is going to be closing for annual maintenance starting Monday, March 1st and is scheduled to open back up on Friday April 2nd, but that is dependent on the weather. During that time the Fair Oaks Recreation and Parks Department will be aerating, seeding, and fertilizing the park so that we have a healthy and robust green turf for the summer months!
