Dog park to re-open in May with healthy grass at Antrim Township Community Park

The dog park at Antrim Township Community Park will open May 1. Antrim administrator Brad Graham announced to the board of supervisors March 22 that the closed canine space had been rejuvenated over the winter. The township closed the park in late October so newly-sown grass could establish itself. The grounds had become bare from heavy use.

Staff is fertilizing the two sections this week, and also hand-seeding a few thin areas and the corners that equipment couldn't reach.

"The grass looks terrific," said Graham.

In other business at the short meeting, Tom McCloud of Waynesboro presented the board with a framed print of the American flag, and the national motto 'In God We Trust'. The phrase had been adopted by Congress in 1956. McCloud is a former resident of Antrim Township. He is distributing the plaques at various places.

"This is very important to me," he said.

He added that anyone supporting the cause could make donations to the Waynesboro Area Fellowship of Churches.

Graham said a joint meeting between the township, Borough of Greencastle, and G-A School District had been scheduled for 6 p.m. Wednesday, April 13 at the middle school. The three bodies meet occasionally to discuss issues of mutual interest, but have not followed a strict pattern.
