Dog Park Info at March SoDo Meeting


The vernal equinox is almost upon us, and the arrival of daylight savings time means additional opportunities to spend more time outside in our neighborhood and local parks.

Adjacent to SoDo is Barnard Park (aka South Green), a small-scale park at the intersection of Main Street and Wethersfield Avenue. In recent years, this former green space was run down and strewn with litter. The fencing has been repaired and the past few holiday seasons saw it adorned with festive lights, organized by Sen. Chris Murphy. Now it is being considered as a possible location for a dog park. Learn more at our next meeting: Wednesday, March 15 at 6:00 pm at First Presbyterian Church of Hartford, 136 Capitol Avenue (enter through the small white building to the right of the main church).

Our Development Services rep, Grace Yi, will give a special presentation on the proposed Barnard Park Dog Park. We will also be discussing our Love Your Block submission, our neighborhood’s Strategic Plan, and the City’s community outreach for their Neighborhood Planning study.

Many thanks to our neighbors Pastor Nancy Baseel and the First Presbyterian staff for generously offering us their space for our meeting. Here is the Agenda and a link to this month's newsletter. We look forward to catching up on neighborhood news with you in person!
