We Need Volunteers!!!

We are looking for gate volunteers to help close the park in the evening. We have a particular need this coming week. Per our agreement with the city, if we don’t have volunteers to close the park then it will stay closed until further notice! 😦

If you are interested in helping out, please send an email to info@newarkstreetdogpark.org


Woof and Wag Spring Fundraiser

The sun is out, the birds are chirping, and the dogs are back to wagging at the park…It’s about time!

Come celebrate spring with us, and our four legged friends, at the Newark Street Dog Park

Sunday May 3, 2015 2-5pm

We’ll have burgers (veggie/beef) and dogs (hot dogs that is) from our friends at Whole Foods Market Tenley, games with prizes from local stores and restaurants like
La Piquette DC, Cactus Cantina, Unleashed by Petco, Wylie WaggRoofers Union, Ripple and more!

You’ll also have the opportunity to begin, or renew, your annual membership with the Newark Street Park K-9 Friends to support the operations and development of the Newark Street Dog Park (DC).

So ‘shake a leg’ and come out to play!

Park Water

Hello Friends!

Unfortunately, there are some pipe damage issues on the block that are preventing the District from turning the water back on. We’ll keep our paws on the pulse and let you know as we get updates.

Great News, friends!

Thanks to the cooperation of the dog park, the community gardens, and Smith, Walker and Sons Plumbing and HVAC, WE HAVE OUR WATER BACK! Tawnya, seems happy.

Park Updates!!

Good Afternoon NSDP Park Friends!

Here is a quick note to update the community about the park:

The board is working with DC Department of Parks and Recreation to assess the needs for resurfacing at all of the parks. DPR is at the bidding stage of the process so it can, by estimation, take upwards of 3-5 months from now to the completion of the project.

The parts have been ordered to fix the water faucet and we hope to have it fixed by no later than next week.

We are planning a Spring Fundraiser for (tentatively) May 3rd. We’ll have a dog agility course, some friendly competitions, educational opportunities, food, and prizes from local restaurants and stores. Check back soon for a list of those community businesses supporting the event. The proceeds from this fundraiser will pay for the new water faucet and support monthly operational costs like regular disinfection.

Thanks for your patience and support! Play on!

Fall Fundraiser and Costume Contest

Thanks to those who came to the event Sunday. We were able to raise over $800! That’s more than 5% of our operating costs IN ONE DAY! This is fantastic but we’ve still got a ways to go so keep an eye out for the next event (and for pictures of the Fall Costume Contest).

Also, don’t forget to attend the Annual Membership Meeting held Tuesday, October 21, 2014 7:30pm at the McLean Gardens Ballroom (3811 Porter St NW). Your participation is important in electing new board members and contributing to the discussion.

Fall Fundraiser and Costume Contest

Join our furry friends on October 19th at the Newark Street Dog Park as we celebrate the Park’s Anniversary with baked goods (for K9 & Human alike) for donations, a doggy costume contest, and drawings for prizes. We’ll also have hot apple cider 🙂

Thanks to our generous sponsors we will be offering rewards from Cactus Cantina, District 2, PetMac Pet Store, Carving Room, Atomic, The Board and more to come!

The event opens at 2:00pm and the Costume Contest will take place at 3:00pm. The drawing will be at the end of the event and you do not need to be present to win.

We will also be present to renew or establish your annual membership. If you are unable to come you can fill out the new membership form online (link below) and donate online via PayPal or remit to “Newark Street Park K9 Friends” Please remember that Newark Street Park K9 Friends is a 501 c 3 organization & survives by your donations to meet its $15,000 annual budgetary needs. This includes paying for dependable daily maintenance & opening for daily use. Also, all donations are tax deductible!

Hope to see you there!
