With the generous support of donors we have managed to do a number of things this year to benefit the dog park:
• Landscaped the “digging hole” area, which opened in November for general use.
• Installed three concrete slabs for tables.
• Upgraded lower gate for added security.
• General cleanup of accumulated junk
Special thanks also to volunteers Lisa Cottrell, Karen Bendinelli, Anne Scully, Jo Ruff, Margerie Lind and Barry and Tia Waldron. They were involved with weeding the “digging hole” area and spreading chips, and raising funds, ordering and installing the new tent cover. Their efforts are much appreciated
Upcoming plans include:
• Adding new wood chips and redistributing the existing chips.
• Repair both water stations along the fence line.
• Install decomposed granite in the tent to mitigate mud problem in the winter.
• Replace the wood on the park’s tables and benches.
• Upgrade the park’s website.
• One of the park patrons is helping us bring back dog park merchandise in the form of hats and T-shirts that will be for sale on our web site.

On August 3rd, the Sausalito Dog Park sponsored the food and beverage booths at Jazz and Blues by the Bay in Gabrielson Park. With the superlative leadership, experience, and organizational skills of volunteer, Marita Albert, the food and drink we provided was well received by the crowd. The weather was reasonably cooperative and we all enjoyed the music of Andre Thierry and Zydeco Magic. Volunteers were abundant and a feeling of exhilaration was in the air at the end of the evening. Most importantly, we were able to raise significant funds to continue to maintain and improve our wonderful Dog Park! Many, many thanks to all the people who helped make this event a success!
Summer Jazz and Blues by the Bay is a free concert program held each Friday night at Gabrielson Park in downtown Sausalito from June through the end of August, from 6:30pm to 8:00pm. This Friday, August 3rd 2012, Friends of The Sausalito Dog Park will be sponsoring the food and beverage concession at the concert.
Andre Thierry & Zydeco Magic will be performing Friday night. They are a band you will love. The Bay Area Blues Society recently awarded Andre Thierry & Zydeco Magic the 2012 award “Best Zydeco group”.
Jazz by the Bay is one of our major annual fundraisers and all proceeds from our concession are used towards improvements and maintenance of the Dog Park. Here is our menu for the night
