Spot Answers “Where’s the Grass?”

See Spot Run in Boulder City, NVThe See Spot Run newsletter arrived a couple of weeks ago and there was an informative article in there that I thought would be nice to pass along to ya’ll.

It’s called “Where’s the Grass?” and answers the burning question as to why the dog park was built and remains a “natural landscape” dog park.

I’m pretty sure the folks at the See Spot Run Dog Park won’t mind me reproducing their article for you in today’s post, so here is what it says:

Although the well publicized plan for our dog park in Veterans Park never included turf, there are still many people who are surprised that See Spot Run Dog Park does not feature any grass. The reason there is no grass? Money!

It took many years just to raise the funds to develop See Spot Run Dog Park as it is today. We relied heavily on donations and volunteers to get it built on a shoestring budget. Irrigation and turf would have added too much to the construction budget.

Even if we had been able to install turf when we built the park, the ongoing costs of watering, fertilizing, cultivating and maintaining turf far exceed the amount we are able to generate through donations and fundraisers at the present time.

Would we like to have a nice grassy dog park? You bet! When we have the funds, it will happen.
