Rover: get ready to rock and roll with your four-legged buddies! This summer’s repairs and renovations to one of Borderstan’s favorite dog parks are now complete — and boy, does the park look good!

Repairs to the 17th and S Streets NW dog park took place during the month of July. The scheduled work included fixing tears and holes in the K9Grass surface, 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.

The 17th and S dog park is managed by the DC Department of Parks and Recreation and is frequently cleaned by neighborhood volunteers. For more information on the park, call or email the DC Department of Parks and Recreation at (202) 671-0421 or dpr.dogparks@dc.gov.
