Dog Days of Summer
It’s the Dog Days of Summer, and the Rail Park needs your support!
Each year, the Rail Park hosts thousands of park goers and their furry friends on park grounds.
While we happily welcome guests with pets, consistent pet usage impacts park quality and safety. We’re calling on our pet parents to paw-nder their role as park stewards and make a donation!
Now through September 12, help us raise $5,000 to keep the Rail Park a happy, healthy space for park goers and furry friends alike!
Donate $30 or become a Rail Park member at the Butterfly level ($25/month) during the Dog Days of Summer Fundraising Campaign to receive a limited edition neon dog tag for your furry friend (or for your keychain!) to show your Rail Park pride.
Where's the Paw-ty at?
Join us on Friday, September 9 from 4-7 PM for a Furry Friends Meet-Up!
Park goers and their dogs are invited to join us for a puppy playdate, complete with treats, a photo booth, giveaways, exclusive merchandise, and special guests. It will be a paws-itively good time!
Registration recommended but not required.
Plus, stop the Rail Park during one of our pop-up events listed below to learn more about the Dog Days of Summer campaign, make a donation, or meet one of our *surprise* guests.
