The popular neighborhood 17th and S Dog Park, renovations are scheduled to begin this month. Known and adored for its K9Grass surface, the canine playground will undergo necessary turf repairs, turf cleaning and landscaping. The work is scheduled to start on Monday, July 9, and is expected to take three-to-four weeks.

Some of the scheduled work includes: fixing tears and holes in the turf, power-washing and vacuuming the turf, cleaning the turf with odor-killing enzymes and anti-microbial sprays, removing dead trees and stumps, planting new trees in the park and covering the tree and bench area with wood chips.

As of now, it is uncertain if the dog park will be closed across the duration of its repairs, or if parts of it will remain open throughout the work.

  1. The S Street Dog Park does NOT have AstroTurf (which is a specific brand), the S Street Dog Park features a K9Grass artificial grass surface designed specifically for dogs, which was DPR’s first installation of K9Grass.

    K9Grass artificial grass is the only artificial grass, designed specifically for dogs. The grass drains well, is able to withstand wear and tear, is easy to maintain, and the knitted structure of K9Grass helps wick away urine for a cleaner facility. In addition, the grass blades are coated with an antimicrobial product which helps fight odors and creates a safer, cleaner environment for the dogs.

  2. Thanks! We will correct.
