REVISED: Maintenance of Olde Izaak Walton Dog Park Postponed Until Further Notice
Due to warmer temperatures, maintenance of the dog park has been rescheduled.
Leesburg, VA (February 11, 2019) – Due to this week's forecast, annual maintenance inside the Olde Izaak Walton Dog Park has been postponed until further notice. As a result, the dog park will remain open.
The Town of Leesburg Parks and Recreation Department, with support from the Department of Public Works, will be performing maintenance, at a later date, which will include the removal of the existing wood chip mulch which will be replaced with a new layer.
The decomposition of the existing mulch causes the surfacing to become saturated after a period of time and can often lead to drainage concerns. Applying new mulch will create a more stable, well drained surface throughout the season. New maintenance dates will be provided once the information becomes available.
