About this event

Friends of the Rail Park welcomes park goers and their dogs for a puppy playdate, complete with treats, a photo booth, giveaways, exclusive merchandise, and special guests. It will be a paws-itively good time!!

This meet-up is the final event in our Dog Days of Summer Fundraising Campaign- an effort to engage dog owners and enhance park stewardship through fundraising and spreading awareness of regulations and best practices for people who walk their dogs at the Rail Park.

Donate to the Campaign

The Dog Days of Summer Campaign is fundraising $5,000 to keep the Rail Park a happy, healthy space for park goers and furry friends alike. A donation directly contributes to pet related maintenance expenses and keeps the park safe and enjoyable for community members!
