Next park work party rescheduled to noon Sat., Sept. 23; need volunteers to whack weeds along fence for the fence repairs, replacement M-DOG's regularly monthly scheduled work party at Strawberry Fields for Rover Off-Leash Park has been scheduled to noon Saturday, Sept. 23 to not conflict with our Paint You Pooch Paint 'N Sip event at noon Sept. 16 at Whitewall Brewing Co.

Okay to bring your dog. Dress for the weather and working conditions, and bring work gloves if you have them, and we'll take care of the tools, equipment and refreshments.

M-DOG hosts GoFundMe fundraiser for Dog Park Fence Replacement Project M-DOG needs your help to secure funds to replace the deteriorating fence at Strawberry Fields for Rover Off-Leash Park. The money will go directly to the park for costs associated with the fence replacement project only. The city of Marysville, in partnership with M-DOG, was recently awarded a $5,000 matching grant through the Snohomish County Small Capital Projects Partnership fund.
Donations we are seeking through this campaign demonstrate our own community and park users' commitment to replace the fence with a more resilient, longer-lasting fence. Names of those who donate a minimum of $30 will be recognized by name on a plaque or other tribute to be installed at the park. Donations are tax-deductible.
A potential second off-leash dog park in Marysville could offer more space for pooches to roam
The City of Marysville in July unveiled a conceptual plan for Mother Nature's Window Park at 100th Street and 55th Avenue that could one day strike a balance of preserving a beautiful forested swath for passive uses while incorporating recreational amenities, including a potential 3.6-acre dog park. The City is contracting with J.A. Brennan Associates, a Seattle-based landscape architect and planning firm that is working with the City on master planning for the proposed park. [read more]
