Dog park cleanup March 2022

Dog Park Cleanup a Success 

We had a great cleanup on Saturday, March 26! We started off with a welcome and congratulations from Dr. Jen Campbell, the Councilmember for District 2, who was very supportive of our efforts to save the park. Over 100 people came to volunteer -- big thanks to all, and especially to those who got there early and stayed late to help set up, pack up, sign in volunteers, and sign up new members!

And Speaking of Volunteers. . .

We'll be participating in two events coming up soon:

Sun., April 24 - San Diego EarthFair in Balboa Park
Sat., May 7 - San Diego Humane Society Walk for Animals at Liberty Station

If you can volunteer at either event, we're looking for help getting the word out about FIDO. We will be talking to folks about projects we're working on to improve and maintain our dog park and how they can help. Click here for more info. 

And Speaking of Those Projects...

FIDO has three big projects we're currently working on:

• Foxtail and tumbleweed removal / native plant restoration
• Improvements of paths from the berms to the beach
• Repair of fencing on the east side of the park that was knocked down by a car

A couple of these will take years to get through the permitting process and completed but we're in it for the long haul!

We're excited to be working on these -- for details, click here

Rock Memorial

We just found out that the Memorial where folks had been placing painted rocks to honor dogs they'd lost was removed Tuesday morning by Park and Rec. FIDO is saddened by this and is working to install a similar memorial that is "legally" placed (authorized by Park and Rec). Any rocks that were not picked up by their owners can be retrieved by calling the Park Ranger office at 858-581-7602 and making arrangements to reclaim them.
