In addition to installing the fence, many S.O.D.A. volunteers worked on planting Snag Row.
Last August 2017, S.O.D.A. volunteers replaced about 400 feet of this fencing along the Dog Park “Snag Row” border. On Saturday, March 3 and Saturday, March 17 2018, S.O.D.A. volunteers began replaced the Lot G “Snag Row” and paths leading to the sports field … read below:
Saturday, March 3, 2018: It was a beautiful spring-like day and Marymoor Dog Park was SO BUSY! Especially BUSY were the ten volunteers that made up the “Special Fencing Crew” that worked so hard to take-down and replace 490 feet of old falling-down, decrepit fencing along Lot G’s “Urban Forest/Snag Row” Border. Thank you S.O.D.A. Volunteers! for donating your time to this project … the new fencing looks GREAT!
Saturday, March 17, 2018: S.O.D.A.’s “Special Fencing Crew” has done it again! The final 400 feet of old falling-down, decrepit fencing along Lot G’s “Urban Forest/Snag Row” Border was taken down and replaced on Saturday, March 17. Thank you to the “12” S.O.D.A. Volunteers that participated! AND thank you to all of the Marymoor Park users who stopped by the work site to say “Thanks!” and tell us how wonderful the new fencing looks!
