Doggie daddys and moms

Dog run group Hamilton Park

Hamilton Park Dog Runs Group:

We have a Hamilton Park Dog Runs Group.  This group is formed to give a voice to all dog owners who use Hamilton Park.  We will discuss issues, maintenance procedures, and have a contact liaison who will report concerns to the HPNA and DPW.
On April 6, 2011, both the large and small dog runs were tilled, aerated, and zeolite was mixed in (volcanic rock used in cat liter) for odor. The dog runs will be on the same DPW maintenance schedule as Van Vorst Park.
The dog runs have rakes, shovels, and large garbage cans inside the runs supplied by the HPNA.  It will take the cooperation of all to keep our park clean and safe.
If you would like to join this group, please see Google Groups: sign up at hamilton-park-dog-runs-group

Hamilton Park Green groups

Hamilton Park Clean Up Group:

We have a Hamilton Park Volunteer Clean Up Group who cleans up the park litter and rubbish throughout the entire park, empties the overflowing garbage cans, and takes all the bags to the curb for pick up.
These volunteers are the reason why our park looks so clean and beautiful and litter free!  They have a three person crew per shift, and it takes them about a half hour to do the park. They are supplied the garbage bags by the city.  If you would like to join this group, please email:

Hamilton Park Greens Group:

We have a Hamilton Park Volunteer Greens Group who work in the mulched beds in the park dead heading the flowers, pulling out weeds, trimming the bushes, pruning the trees, maintain the cleanliness of our beautiful large water fountain at the entrance to the park at 8th & Jersey, and anything else that is needed.  They are supplied the garbage bags and gardening tools by the city.  If you would like to join this group, please email:
