Helping to keep a Cranbrook park clean
After a long process of negotiations and numerous delays, on October 18, finally three Pet Waste Stations, courtesy of Karla Shalley owner of The Playpen, were installed at Idlewild Park.
The City was first approached with the proposal to install pet waste stations in the fall of 2012. Several emails, meetings, and constant delays were the ‘order’ since early May of this year. In October, Karla, along with her two volunteers, Todd and Eileen, were given permission to install these three stations themselves. It didn’t take these three enthusiastic and willing volunteers very long to get these stations installed.
The stations are all on the 9th St. entrances to Idlewild; two of them at the entrances to Idlewild Peace Park, and the third at the parking lot near to the children’s play area. Our hopes are that pet owners will be responsible and pick up, making good use of these stations installed for their use, and to assist the City in helping to keep our City clean.
How many people does it take to install pet waste stations - just two blonds and one good man!
