Due to a water leak at the North Garner Dog Park, the water spigot inside of the park will be shutoff effective immediately on Friday, August 17 and remain off throughout the weekend. Buckets of water will be supplied from nearby water sources. Repairs are scheduled to begin on Monday, August 20, with the park closed all day. Intermittent closures will occur throughout the week. We hope to have this park open for normal operations as soon as possible. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding as we work to resolve and enhance this park.

I am very proud of our programs, facilities and special events, as well as the level of dedication each staff person (including those in Public Works and the Police Department) exhibits while working to successfully maintain the aesthetics and safety of our parks. We are honored to serve our citizens and will continue striving to give our very best service to patrons and visitors as we “Discover, Play and Celebrate.”
