Goodbye Fall Leaves

Saturday Dog Run Clean-up

On December 4th, NYC Parks and SPNA board member Jeff Fagan with other Stuyvesant Park Dog Run volunteers came together to tidy up the piles of fall leaves in the dog run. The photo above shows NYC Parks’ Crew Chief Josie DeJesus, Jeff Fagan, and volunteers behind some of the 30 bags of leaves they cleared on the busy day.

Volunteers also came out on November 20th to rake leaves and plant tulip bulbs. Below are photos from the November 20th event. We want to thank all the volunteers who came out to plant and rake, as well as NYC Parks’ Josie DeJesus ¬†and Maria Mendez and SPNA board members Doris Dieter, Grace Iannuzzi, and Claire Brennan, for their efforts in keeping Stuyvesant blooming.

Interested in volunteering? Our bi-weekly Gardening Club continues to meet every Tuesday and Thursday from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM, weather permitting. Masks are required. No experience is necessary.

Dapper Dogs Walk The Red Carpert

Halloween Dog Park Costume Parade and Contest

On Sunday, October 24th, our neighbors and their furry friends came together for some friendly competition for the Halloween Dog Park Costume Parade and Contest, organized by SPDogs. Pets and their owners walked the red carpet, showing off their creative, cute, and classy ensembles. Awards and cash prizes provided by SPNA were given for Best Doggie Costume, Best Dog Duo or Group, and Best Parent and Pup. In addition, one duo received an honorable mention. A photo gallery with the winners and many of the participants is included below.

SPNA sends a big thank you to SPDogs’ Jeff Fagan, who organized the event with help from Gale Bond. Both Jeff and Gale were indispensable in helping to bring this first Halloween pet parade to the Stuyvesant Park Dog Run (shown above). In addition to cultivating a joyful and fun event, they collected donations for Animal Haven here in New York City, helping to spread love and joy to animals across our city.
