Marietta’s community dog park hope that enough people will pitch in to allow
the fencing work to be completed this Saturday. Putting up fence around the
two-acre site is labor-intensive, and that’s why the call is going out for more
gather at Jackson Park off Cisler Drive at 9:00 a.m. Saturday. Organizers say a three-hour work
session should be enough to complete the fencing project.
Volunteers need not commit to the entire three hours.
A community dog park
was planned by and is being built by volunteers, with support from several
individual and business partners.
The city donated the land. Other work remaining to be
done includes hanging pedestrian, dog and equipment gates.
The project also
would benefit from tax-deductible donations, which may be made to the Marietta
Community Dog Park, in care of the Marietta Community Foundation
