NO FIREWORKS at Grandview! Fire Danger, Foxtail, and more

EXTREME FIRE DANGER! –FIREWORKS – FOXTAILS – CAR BREAK-INS!  PLEASE READ THE BELOW AND SHARE!

1)   EXTREME FIRE DANGER!
It has been extremely hot and dry and the Dog Park is really, really dried out.  Smoking is highly discouraged!!  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!

2)  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.

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!

4)  CAR BREAK-INS!
Help prevent car break-ins by NOT leaving valuables in your car when you are at Grandview park.  Signs are posted in the parking lot reminding you to take valuables with you when you park.  “Smash and  Dash” is no fun when you are the victim!

Thank you – May Work Party!
