As of this post, we are still seeking insurance that can cover all of the requests from the Philadelphia Redevelopment Authority (PRA, owners of the property). The PRA has been assisting us in finding insurance that can fulfill their requirements and to have us reopen as soon as possible.
As the park remains closed, we need you more than ever. We need you to attend meetings and events, share our Facebook page or email/tweet to community leaders to help us reopen the park.
We will update you as we get further news..
Tomorrow is our monthly meeting.
We will be present at the Foodery at 730pm tomorrow to answer any questions.
If there are any questions please email ...
Our monthly meeting will be postponed until January. We should have more updates by then.
As of this post, we are waiting for the owners (PRA) to sign their end of the lease.
If there are any questions, please feel free to contact us via email...
The owners of the property are working with us to get this open soon. As of yesterday they replied with a few requests / questions which the board is working on. We are hoping to open after Thanksgiving sometime, but will certainly keep updating as things happen.
We wanted to update everyone on the Roxborough Dog Park’s status.
The City of Philadelphia has requested to review and update our insurance policy and revise the members application. The city has all information for review and approval. In the meantime, the dog park reopening and all activities have to be postponed until we receive approval.
We will keep you updated as we get advised.

Meet you at the dog park on October 14, 2017.
The Board of the Roxborough Dog Park.
We are excited about the new upcoming improvements to the dog park.
We have already added more grass seed to the dog park, and fertilized it. We have added a rain barrel and working on above ground drainage. Additionally, we are excited to roll out our plan to make the park members only!
We hope to have new applications out by the beginning of October.
As we move forward with dog park improvements the dog park will be closed.
Just a reminder of tonight's monthly dog park meeting, from 6:30-7:30 pm in the basement of the Roxborough Library. We will be reviewing updates and discussing future plans for the park.
Members should have received an email from the park board this afternoon. Many people have heard or read that there was an incident yesterday at the dog park. The board feels at this time that the park should be closed so focus can be on plans of making the park members-only.
Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend the next (and all!) dog park meeting. They are held on the second Wednesday of the month, 6:30-7:30 pm at the Roxborough Library. Next meeting is on 9/13.
Apologies for the inconvenience and inability to give a firm date and timeline but, as always, we need to keep the focus on safety of the humans and dogs who come to the park.
Want to help a non for profit? Do you know or are you a lawyer that can help us? We are looking for a lawyer that can look over some forms to make sure it covers our members and park.
