Mark Your Calendars for Grand Opening!

The City and TakomaDogs met this week to discuss many things, including a tentative date for the grand opening ceremony. The ceremony is currently set for Sunday, January 29 at 2:00 p.m.

We will meet in the parking lot behind the Takoma Park Community Center at 7500 Maple Avenue in Takoma Park with our dogs and City officials. We plan to have a dog parade the short distance between the Community Center rear parking lot and the new dog park. We're meeting in the rear parking lot, not the front lot.

Bring your dog, wear your TakomaDogs t-shirt (outside your coat because it's likely to be cold!), and feel free to bring colorful, parade-worthy paraphernalia and noise makers. Don't have a dog? Still come out and celebrate this new awesome community resource.

Should the weather be awful, there is a backup date of Sunday, February 5. The date could also slip due to construction delays.
