The Event: Bring your dog out for a walk, some dog play and social fun at The Crossings Park. Your canine friend will love you for it and it's sure to put big smiles on both your and your dog's faces! This is a recurring informal event (with no set host) happening daily. I'm posting it for every Saturday but please feel free to let others know in your RSVP comment if you'll attend on a different day. Even if no one from our group is signed up - you are sure to meet other dogs and owners that frequent The Crossings. Check it out!
Your Host: There is no set host for this. It is an informal recurring FYI gathering.
Parking: Enter The Crossings from Albany/Shaker Road and take your first right into the semi-circular parking lot.
A Map: This shows the semi-circular parking lot and open lawn areas as well as on site buildings with public restrooms and water fountains:
The Meeting Spot: The semi-circular capped field stone bench in The Arboretum between 2-2:10pm.
Duration: About 2 hours.
Pace: Rev yourself up by running/playing with the dogs or take a liesurely walk on the trails. You decide!
Gear & Special Circumstances: Gear up appropriately for the weather conditions of the day. Pack water, snacks and TOYS for yourself and your dog. Please also bring what you need to dispose of your pet waste by bagging and placing it in the trash cans on site in this popular area. Please practice responsible leashing. Even though the park rules recommend dogs be kept on leash, I've seen most owners of well socialized dogs either let go of the leash or let them off leash to run & play - knowing when to reconnect. Keep in mind that others using the park may not be as comfortable around or as fond of dogs as we are so each dog owner's discretion is advised.

You know yourself and your own dogs best and are responsible for safe socializing within the group.
