Summer Safety at Grandview

SUMMER SAFETY AT GRANDVIEW

PLEASE READ THE BELOW AND SHARE!

1)  FIREWORKS!
Fireworks are prohibited at Grandview Dog Park (and in the City of Seatac).
Please call 911 if you witness anyone lighting off fireworks in the park.
If you are in the park on July 5th and notice trash from illegal activities in the park, please help by cleaning up!

2)  FIRE DANGER!
With the weather turning warmer and low rain, the Dog Park is getting dried out.
Smoking is a fire risk and is prohibited in all SeaTac parks. Please call 911 if you see any fires at Grandview.  Please “wet down” any smoldering areas with water (plastic poop bags filled with water work great). YOU can help prevent Dog Park fires!

3)  FOXTAIL!
Foxtail can cause harm to dogs.  If you see it, pull it and dispose of in trash.  DO NOT throw it on ground as it will spread seeds (see previous post for details and pictures of Foxtail).  Be sure to carefully check your dog after each visit to the Dog Park and remove any Foxtails that may have gathered in his/her furry coat, ears, eyes, or paws.  Remember that these seeds can work their way down to and even penetrate, your dog’s skin potentially causing health risks. A “Foxtail check” after your Dog Park visit is highly recommended!

Fencing Work Party
Saturday Oct 13th
9:00am – 2:00pm
Grandview Dog Park

We will be fencing the ‘spa/pond’ area in the SE corner of park, including access for dogs who want to swim, but also offering safety so dogs can’t get out of park boundary (or get too muddy if you just gave a bath!)

This is a BIG project and we will need many volunteers! Please come help us add this metal fencing while the ground is still soft but the water isn’t too high!

We are in need of the following items for the fencing work party, if you can donate or bring for use:

  • Hammers
  • Wire Cutters
  • Mallets
  • Metal post drivers
  • Zip ties
  • Metal fence posts
  • 6′ wire fencing
