Our Mud Pit is Gone!!

After months of asking, begging, pressuring and, finally, sending a note to anyone and everyone who might be able to help, we have finally gotten the District Government to deal with the drainage problem in our dog park.

The mud pit is gone!!! 

So, come on back to your neighborhood dog park and help us build a dog community in LeDroit Park, Bloomingdale and surrounding communities.
