The Mother Matilda Beasley Park is located on East Broad Street in downtown Savannah. The dog park was created in Spring 2008 and is maintained by the Chatham County Commissioners.

This site is very unofficial and is for the benefit of dogs and dog owners who frequent the park or those that are interested in visiting. We have no authority over the park except for our mutual interest in keeping it a vital community space.

Rescued Dog Looking for a Home and a Name

This little dog was rescued by one of our regulars when found running near the park one day. He's currently being fostered by another couple who are here almost daily. Nobody has figured out what name suits him best, but we all love when he shows up. He's well socialized with all the other dogs and people, has never shown aggression or fearfulness. He's likely a Staffordshire Terrier mix. Ron thinks that he's half-dog, half-Easter Island head. He's full-grown and probably about 2 years old, but still only about 25lbs (probably about 20lbs are his head). He's learning his commands and is a total sweetheart.

Great blog, Kate! I've got some better pictures of Bigheaded Boy, if you would like to post them...

See you at the park! (Hey, Cap. Ahab - you look mah-vou-lous!).

The Boy has been adopted. Ann and Andrew found him a home out on the Islands and he's in a house with a couple of other dogs. Happy as a pig in shit apparently.
