“They did a phenomenal job,” she said of the clean-up effort. “It’s so amazing. The difference it made. It’s such an improvement. The vines encroached 6 to 10 feet into the park. And it’s not a big park to begin with so when lose that much, the park’s not as usable.”
Joshua also coordinated with the city, which provided a pile of gravel to fill in low spots under the fence, said Jones.
“We’re very blessed. John Martino, who used to work at the city was great to work with and now the new [Kokomo Parks & Recreation] superintendent, Randy Morris, is supporting us.”
The volunteers also fed Isaac’s group and thanked them for the help in keeping the dog parks clean and make people know they are there.
“That’s our biggest push is letting people know the facilities are available.”
The other dog park at Mehlig Park off West Carter Street on the city’s west side provides another area for dog owners and dog lovers alike.
