Mario Lanza Dog Park Improvement Project

QVK9's goal is to make the Mario Lanza Dog Park a safe and enjoyable place for our neighbors and their 4 legged friends. The dog park receives no funding from the City and all park repairs including replacing the lights, the gates, repairing the fountain, rolling the surface, and other improvements are 100% funded by membership and donations.  If you frequently use the park, please consider donating to help us reach our goal of getting K9 Dog Grass!

Our current improvement project goals:
- $5,000 resurface the dog run
- $40,000 new K9 Dog Grass
