City’s Second Dog Park Opened at Warner Parks

Edwin Warner Park is the site of Metro’s latest Dog Park. The two-acre, fenced area is located on the west side of Vaughn Gap Road, and is open until 11 p.m. Although dog parks were a part of the Mayor’s Master Plan for Parks and Greenways, the unparalleled popularity and heavy demand for the facilities was seen by Metro’s Parks Department shortly after the opening of the Shelby Dog Park in East Nashville.

Although leashes aren’t required, there are rules at all Metro Dog Parks. These rules help ensure that the park remains safe, healthy, and friendly.
Park hours are posted at the entrance. If it’s closed, don’t use it.

Always, always dispose of your dog’s waste in the trash receptacles. Dog waste bags are provided in the park.

Dogs must be wearing current rabies and identification tags at all times. Dogs must be leashed before entering and exiting the fenced area. Dogs that become aggressive must be leashed and removed from the park immediately. Owners are legally responsible for their dog and any injuries caused by the dog.

The following are not permitted:
Dogs in heat
Dogs under four months of age
Dogs without supervision
Food of any kind
Glass containers

Each owner is permitted to bring no more than two dogs. Have a leash on hand for each dog at all times. All children entering the dog park must be accompanied by an adult and supervised by them.

How to Use a Dog Park
Leash dog before exiting the car and keep your dog leashed until inside the park.

Enter only at the double-gated entry vestibule. Once through the first gate, unleash dog and proceed through the second gate into the active field.

You must actively monitor your dog. If you’re absorbed in conversation or napping, you won’t know if you need to pick up your dog’s waste or if your dog becomes aggressive – both of which are your responsibility.

Exit the same way you entered, remembering to leash your dog before leaving the vestibule.
Metro Parks currently operated two Dog Parks. The Shelby Dog Park is located immediately behind the Shelby Park Community Center at 20th and Boscobel streets in East Nashville. From Interstate 24 (near the downtown coliseum), exit east on Shelby Avenue. Continue east for twenty blocks and you’ll see the center to your left. Parking lots are located to the north of the center or immediately below the tennis courts to the south. The dog park is just behind the center. The Shelby Dog Park is open from dawn until 8 p.m.

The Warner Dog Park is located in Edwin Warner Park on the west side of Vaughn Road, just south of Old Hickory Boulevard (across from the Steeplechase). The facility is open from dawn until dusk.

The Metro Parks Department is excited about providing a growing number of dog parks. All of our parks are dog friendly, if the following rules are followed.
Dogs must be restrained by a leash not to exceed six feet in length.

Leashed or not, dogs are not permitted in playgrounds, tennis courts, pools, fenced ball fields, or any posted facility.

You must always pick up your dog’s waste and dispose of it in a trash receptacle.

Every weekend, we have different foods outside, just look for the lemonade stand and the funnel cakes!

Eating healthy this weekend? Try salmon with a little lemon and soy sauce, all available in the market.

Or stop by the meat market and pick up a steak or some of their delicious biscuits!

Need a unique gift, visit Sampson in the Flea Market and have him air brush a caricature on a T-shirt.

Or check out the booths that are selling wonderful aromatic oils.

Stop by and visit us on the way home…..

William Stetar Returns Home! -- from Kacky Fell

William Stetar is back at home! He’s still going to rehab sessions but now it’s on an outpatient basis, and he’s doing really well. I know we all breathe a sigh of relief – along with his parents, Bill & Lisa, and brother, Nicholas – that he’s back in the neighborhood “full time”.

Thanks to all of you who have donated money to help purchase William a portable DVD player. Those of you who have contributed have been very generous! In order to get what we really want, we need about $75 - $100 dollars over what I have and what has been “pledged”. I’m planning to get everything taken care of this week, so if you haven’t contributed and would like to, please bring me your money before Friday. You can drop it off at my place, 1208 7th Avenue any time. If I’m not here, just put it through the mail slot in the door on the front porch.

Notices from the NPD Central Precinct

-We are still seeing numerous counterfeit checks being passed that are using Jiffy-Lube and Qwick-Sak as the business. These are high quality fakes, and if a business is given one they should verify them through the listed bank prior to accepting it.

-There is a team of female blacks that are targeting women victims in various stores (Target, Kroger, etc.). They are seeking women who have their purse in the front of the shopping cart and then one person will distract the victim and the other will steal either their purse or the wallet from the purse. At this time we do not have any suspect information other than above.

William Stetar Update -- Gift Opportunity -- from Kacky Fell

Hi, Everyone!

I thought you might like an update on how William is doing. He seems to be getting better every day. I went to see him a couple of days ago, and he was sitting up in a chair wearing street clothes. He’s still weak but was looking much better and smiling a lot! Lisa took him, along with their dog Scout, to the Dragon Park for an outing late last week. It sounded like everyone had a great time!

Between therapy sessions at Stallworth Rehabilitation Hospital, William is also enjoying watching movies! To let him know that we miss him and wish him a speedy recovery, the neighborhood is planning to buy a portable DVD player for William to use while he’s in the hospital and after he gets back home. Because of the generosity of Germantown neighbors, we’ve already raised quite a bit of money. However, we’d like for as many people as possible to participate so that we can get him a really good player.

If you’d like to contribute to Germantown’s “Fund for William Stetar’s Movie Viewing Pleasure”, please bring your contributions by my place at 1208 7th Avenue North. If I’m not here, you can put the money through the mail slot in the door. It will be safe.

Thanks so much!
