Don't Forget: Dog Park Opens Sunday at 1:30 p.m.!

The dog park opening celebration kicks off Sunday, April 2 at 1:30 p.m., rain or shine. Bring your dog, wear your TakomaDogs t-shirt (outside your coat if it's cold!), and feel free to bring colorful paraphernalia. Don't have a dog? Still come out and celebrate this awesome new community resource.

There will be veterinarians to chat with, doggie schwag to covet, and you can even pick up your very own Support the Dog Park t-shirt, if you do not have one. After all the speeches, the park will be open for your and fido's enjoyment, so please join us!

The dog park is located at the top of Takoma-Piney Branch Park at the end of the parking lot on Darwin Avenue. On Google Maps the address comes out at 198 Darwin Ave. Apple Maps doesn't yet handle the address properly, so type 14 Darwin Ave. into your iPhone, then walk past the address into the parking lot.

Parking is extremely limited, so we encourage you to walk to the park or park behind the Community Center in the Community Center parking lot near the library. We cannot guarantee that there will be parking at the dog park.

We've reported the map issue to Apple and hope they will make their correction soon. Click the map at the right to load a larger map from Google.
