The Shaw Dog Park in the 1600 block of 11th Street is an awesome community asset. In addition to providing a place for area dogs to get some exercise and to have some fun, the park has proven to be an excellent venue for building community among dog-owning and dog-admiring neighbors. This amenity is one of many that has enhanced the quality of life in Shaw over the past few years.
A six month anniversary celebration of the Shaw Dog Park will take place this Saturday (May 16) from 10-12 at the park. Councilmember Jack Evans and ANC Commissioner Alex Padro will be there, so it will be a great time to thank them personally for making the dog park a reality. There will also be food (for humans and dogs), drink, raffle prizes, and short presentations on pet-related matters: health, insurance, massage, etc.
Hope to see you there!
