LIKE OUR DOG PARK? HELP SUPPORT IT!
Eckington Parks & Arts is largely responsible for day-to-day maintenance and management of the dog park, including turf cleaning, purchase of dog waste bags, and setting rules to help keep pups safe. We rely on donations to help make this possible!
We are committed to keeping this community space available, and ask that dog park users please contribute if able. Donations of at least $60 automatically include an Eckington Parks & Arts membership for one household member. Donations of at least $100 include membership for two household members. Memberships run from January through December.
We visit (almost) every day... $250/year or $20/month (recurring donation)
We visit once or twice a week... $60/year or $5/month (recurring donation)
We visit occasionally (drop-in visit).... $3/visit
