White Rock Lake Dog Park Maintenance

Enhanced maintenance is required at the White Rock Lake Dog Park.  Park maintenance staff will close the Dog Park beginning Monday, Oct 19 at 7:00 a.m. and will reopen Tuesday, Oct 20 at 7:00 a.m.

NOTE:  Each Monday, maintenance staff performs routine maintenance (mowing, forestry, litter pick-up, refilling of pet waste bags, etc.), then reopens the dog park after the work is complete.  There are cases that require an all-day closure on Mondays for enhanced maintenance.  This is the case.  The turf is in poor condition and requires additional maintenance by staff.  This includes irrigating, aerating and resting.  Dry weather conditions have created hazardous cracks in some areas and standing water in others.
