Building a dog park

The city donated the land; KDOG provided the fundraising and labor.

Not open yet because...
We finally finished spreading the rest of Mt. Hog Fuel (ground cover) over the park. The backhoe dumped a large load of hog fuel over the fence. Volunteers spread it by hand with rakes and pitchforks. We were able to purchase the hog fuel with the help of a Petco Foundation grant.

We spread hog fuel over the large dog area.

And the small dog area.
The view.

The wetland outside the park. The park itself was choked with invasive blackberries.


  1. That's awesome! Great pics of the work involved. There will soon be a lot of happy doggies!

  2. Oh my gosh! It's really, really beginning to take shape, isn't it? SO exciting! :)

  3. That is going to be great...what fun it will be! xo

  4. That is pretty cool that you are part of this historic canine event!! Our hooman BIL just said that invasive blackberries are all around Seattle. How do you get rid of them then??
