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.

Big Success

This past Saturday we completed our first volunteer work day at the Dog Park. This was the first phase of the Greenline Architecture Project. With donated materials from the County, a group of about 24 voluteers worked through the morning heat to address the water drainage issues in the park. We were able to expand the watering area, digging down to create a quasi-french drain. We also added sand to the dust bowl to cut down on mud and dust, added sand and gravel to then entrances, and mulched the plantings and edges.

The folks that showed up worked cheerfully and diligently to finish it all off in one morning. Thanks so much for all the hard work.

Here's some photos stolen from Bud Rosser's facebook page.
