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.

Update on Greenline Architects & Park Improvements

I heard from Keith at Greenline Architects this morning regarding their pro-bono project to make some improvements to the park. He's been in touch with the County officials regarding the plans and received a verbal go ahead. They'd also like us to work with Park & Tree Commission regarding all the work so they are being brought into the mix.

Keith is going to spend the next few weeks itemizing the details re: construction and materials to submit for final approval from the County. Then we can meet to figure out how we'll manage soliciting for funds and donations.

The County is excited that Greenline and the dog park users are getting involved, especially with the other plans for Beasley Park going into effect in the next couple of years. Other plans for the space include moving the historic Matilda Beasley home to the site and adding permanent restrooms to the south end of the park.

Will keep you all posted with further updates!
