Amazon Dog Park ….Get out, Get dirty and Give back to canines


Volunteers play a vital role in City of Eugene parks system, and together, can make remarkable improvements to well-loved and much used parks. One such case is Saturday’s project at Amazon Dog Park, where regular dog park users banded together and secured donations to bring forth a much needed path graveling project. Each year as the rains fall the paths in the dog park are often overcome with water making it difficult for dog park users to recreate with their pets. You can be a part of volunteerism, and help spread 15 tons of gravel on the lower and upper paths, to improve the trails before the rains begin. Eugene Park Stewards would like to acknowledge Wildish Industries, United Rentals of Eugene, Toby’s, Genesis Juice, and Humble Bagel for their generous donations of materials and refreshments in support of this project.

Saturday, July 20   8 am – 12 pm

Amazon Dog Park is located directly south of the LTD transit station, east of the East 29th and Amazon Parkway intersection. Eugene Park Stewards will provide tools, instruction, gloves, and snacks. RSVP to help plan for tools and equipment. Volunteers may park at the Amazon Community Center and walk the bike path to the dog parks.
