After 10 years of heavy dog use our dog park surface and substratum hasamassed drainage issues related to compaction and structure which is  preventing the necessary water drainage within the park.  The lack of water drainage causes puddles whose content is laced with fecal matter which in turn contains dangerous E. Coli and volatile sulfur compound.

The Friends of Peters Park volunteer group has been given strict guidelines from the City of Boston's Parks department on what the dog park refurbishment needs to entail and is also managing the contractor details.


Construction expected September-October

TBD per Parks Dep’t: Temporary Dog Space

We will share updates as we learn them!
