McCarren Park Dog Run has been around for 10+ years. It has seen many transformations over that time as our community of local dog owners have pitched in to improve the space. McCarren Dog Run Association is a non-profit organization conceived over 5 years ago by Christine Murray who started the 501(c)(3). It is committed to maintaining and improving the condition of the park and its community. With the help of many people and businesses along the way, the organization has made several significant improvements to the park: the drainage system was put in place in 2011 from the $20,000 raised by the community, tools have been made accessible, regular clean ups have been organized and more awareness has been raised regarding dog park etiquette.
- continue promoting responsible dog ownership and working to maintain a safe and clean dog run;
- using existing funds only toward the direct improvement of the park;
- maintaining a board that is comprised of a majority of independent dog run users instead of dog business owners.
