Southwest Corridor Park Conservancy
Dog Walking in the SWC
Dogs and dog owners are an important part of creating a healthy neighborhood, and the SWC is well-used year-round, in all types of weather and throughout the day and evening by dog owners and their dogs. Since the park is intensively used by so many people, dogs and other animals, and since the greenspace is maintained by volunteers and is planted on a fairly thin layer of soil over the subway and train, it is important to find ways to make sure that dogs have a positive impact on the park and greenspace.
Three Dog Rules for a Healthy Park:
- Support your neighbors and fellow dog owners in picking up after their dogs ... carry a spare poop bag to offer a neighbor who may have forgotten one.
- Keep your pup out of the planted beds for their health, and for the health of our shrubs and flowers.
- Keep the grass healthy by having your dog relieve itself on sidewalks, streets and alleys. Kids play on the grass.
Thank you for keeping your dog, our park and our kids healthy!
