Thanks to the combined efforts of the Friends of the Culver City Dog Park and the City of Culver City, the Boneyard now has lighting installed and the dog park will be open from dawn to 10 p.m. every day.
Friends of Culver City Dog Park said in an official statement that thanks to a generous donation by Nantworks, the Boneyard’s new neighbor, the Dog Park now has beautiful security lights to illuminate the Park in the evenings.
“We are so happy to see this final piece of the puzzle fall into place for the Dog Park,” said Friends’ Chair Vicki Daly Redholtz. “We have been working for the last several years to not only bring lights to the park but to ensure that the lights are maintained and the electrical costs are met for many years to come.”
The Friends of the Culver City Dog Park will present a check for $35,000 to the City at an upcoming February City Council meeting. The funds will be used to light the park for many years to come. “We estimate that this contribution should take care of these needs for at least the next 25 years,” Daly Redholtz said.
Opened in April 2006, the Culver City Dog Park was the brainchild of the Friends of the Culver City Dog Park; a community based non-profit organization, in cooperation with the City of Culver City.
With a grant provided by the Environmental Protection Agency, dormant and polluted land was reclaimed and decontaminated. Donations to the Friends provided the funds to complete the city-owned Park. A subsequent Grant from the County of Los Angeles was used to enhance the Park’s grounds and services.
The Culver City Dog Park is located on Leash Lane at Duquesne Avenue one block north of Jefferson Boulevard. For more information on Friends of the Culver City Dog Park, visit www.culvercitydogpark.org
