PAWS of Greenwich’s ‘Dog Park Spruce Up’ is June 16

PAWS of Greenwich, a local animal advocacy nonprofit and a network of Greenwich-area dog lovers, owners, and businesses, will join forces on Saturday, June 16, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. for a day of clean up and pet-friendly activities at Greenwich’s Grass Island Dog Park.

The second annual dog park clean-up furthers PAWS of Greenwich’s goal of revitalizing the town of Greenwich’s only dog park. The park was built on land “fill” debris, overlooking the swells of the town’s Waste Treatment Plant. The park lacks an essential grass cover and is mainly mud, dirt, rocks, and hazardous debris “fill” that comes up through the ground, harmful to dogs and their owners. PAWS of Greenwich will continue their efforts to clean up the park to attract new residents and paws and make it a safe and enjoyable environment for both dogs and their owners.

Event activities will include: planting of new grasses and trees, pet resources, kids activities, adoptable dogs, food and a raffle featuring giveaways from local businesses.
