Winds of Change

Posted on November 15, 2018 at 9:22 PM by Judy Davids

It may or may not feel like fall out there, but there are some important changes happening at the park that we want to bring to your attention. There are new park rules posted in the 'Dog Park Stuff' section. These rules were created in conjunction with the city and the Friends of Mark Twain Dog Park. They have been reviewed and approved by the City of Royal Oak attorney, City of Royal Parks & Rec, Member of the Mark Twain Dog Park and the Parks & Rec Advisory Board. These rules are effective immediately.

We want every member to understand that the changes were made to ensure that we are all able to maintain a safe environment for both dogs and humans. At a quick glance the main changes are:

  • Code of Conduct was merged into the rules  
  • Communication on how to report rule violation(s)
  • Created a new membership section
These changes will ensure that each member is being held to the same set of rules and has a clear understanding of the park rules. Please review these rules and let us know if you have any questions or comments. Good news is that now that we have these rules we will be working with the city to get a new sign made. This sign and membership information will be posted in the small dog park so that is clearly visible to visitors and members. This should help educate our visitors on how to go about getting access to the park.
Thank you to all of our members for your continued support!!
