Ears up MGD fam! The dog run will be closed for 24 hours for lime treatment. The treatment begins at 8pm on Sunday, October 11th, and continues until Monday, October 12th at 8pm. For the health and safety of all park patrons, the gate will remain locked during this time.
Lime treatment is recommended by the NYC Parks department. This helps sanitize the mulch in the area, keep bugs like fleas and ticks away, and suppress odors.
Lime treatments can cause breathing and skin problems in dogs if the lime is not properly settled in the soil. The settling process takes about 24 hours which is why MGD will be closed during that time. We’re told the rain that’s forecast for tonight should accelerate the settling process.
