PetSmart CEO, Mayor Johnson & Front Street Shelter Celebrate Opening of Pop-Up Park in Sacramento

SACRAMENTO – PetSmart, Inc. has partnered with the City of Sacramento to bring a portable, pop-up park to Sacramento. This portable dog park provides more than 9,000 square feet of space for pet parents to bring their dogs to play. PetSmart’s P.U.P. is a shipping container that contains everything that can be deployed to create an interim dog park, including 340 feet of fencing, three waste clean-up stations, three moveable benches, lighting on and inside the container.

 

While the park has been open to the community since August, a community celebration and official ribbon cutting will take place on Saturday, September 27. Speakers will include Kevin Johnson, Mayor of Sacramento and David Lenhardt, President and CEO of PetSmart.

Food Literacy Fair is Sunday

Food Literacy Fair is Sunday

There are a lot of Farm-to-Fork events about to start this weekend. One I will promote is a free event - the Food Literacy Fair happening on Sunday at 9 a.m. at Southside Park.

What's nice is that it is happening at the same time as the farmers market under the freeway. You can get some education on produce and then go buy it across the street!
