Nominate Dog Park Gatekeepers for Recognition!

Please take a moment to nominate the Rincon Hill Dog Park & Open Space for an “Outstanding Park Volunteer Group” award!

Why?  Since our park’s grand opening in February 2012 – our park has been 100% Community Volunteer supported!  (Actually, almost a year since the soft opening in mid-December).  Seventeen committed Gatekeeper Volunteers coordinated by Áine O’Connell who open and close 7 days a week at 6 am & 10 pm.  Monthly Clean & Sweep Volunteers maintaining the park. Our  local small business, Pawtrero Hill Bathhouse & Feed Co who provides cleanup bags. And, a brave team that empties the trash.

Why? Our dogs love the space.
