REMINDER OF PARK RULES
Ball season is geared up and there is a lot more traffic at the park. We would like to remind everyone that dogs are not permitted inside the fences at the 4-plex and 5-plex and must be on a leash (not to exceed 6’) elsewhere in the park. Fishermen please be aware of your surroundings and be sure to clean up after yourself. Help us take care of your park.
