Notice to Hannah’s Bark Park Members

We hope you and yours are in good health during this fight against COVID-19. We understand the importance of exercise and fresh air for you and your pets – especially under our current circumstances. However, the health and safety of the public, and the dog park membership, is always our priority. 

In order to protect the health and safety of our members, and following the guidelines and recommendations from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (see link below), the decision has been made to close the dog park beginning Saturday, May 2, 2020 until further notice.  At this time, we are uncertain as to when the park will resume operation, but we will continue to monitor the recommendations of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and share any updates.

Membership fees may be extended for the period of the park closure, or you may request a refund for the number of months not used due to the park’s closure.  Questions regarding refunds can be sent to Ryan Longoria at rlongoria@mt-pleasant.org

Please note that Mission Creek Park and all other City parks and trails remain open, although park restroom facilities and the Island Park Skate Park are closed. While enjoying these park offerings please practice social distancing and keep dogs on their leashes, in accordance with park rules.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding during these difficult times.  We very much look forward to seeing you and your dogs at the park in the near future. 

Sincerely,

City of Mt. Pleasant Parks and Recreation Department

Social Distancing – What does that mean?

As we continue our fight against COVID-19 we have made drastic changes to our daily lives and have added new terminology like ‘social distancing’ to our vocabulary. What does this mean and how does that look? Simply put, we must keep 6 ft. of physical distance from each other.

Keep this in mind as you are navigating the aisles at the grocery store or pharmacy as well as standing in the checkout lines. This is also true when you are getting exercise and enjoying a walk or run through our parks system or your neighborhood.

Please remember you can still shop for your necessities; continue to enjoy the outdoors, all while helping stop the spread of COVID-19 by simply keeping a 6 ft. distance from others. Thank you for doing your part in keeping our community safe and healthy.
