Palm Springs, CA
The City of Palm Springs is advising the community that the David H. Ready Palm Springs Dog Park behind City Hall will close for annual reseeding beginning Monday, Nov. 6 through Tuesday, Dec. 12, 2023.
Reseeding grass at a park refers to the specific process of planting grass seeds in an area within the park with the purpose of establishing a new or healthier grass cover. This is typically done to repair damaged or worn-out sections of the park’s grassy areas. Reasons for reseeding may include issues like bare patches, thinning grass, or areas affected by factors such as heavy use, pests, or environmental stressors.
The process of reseeding involves preparing the soil, distributing grass seeds evenly, and providing the necessary conditions for germination and growth. This could include measures like watering, fertilizing, and protecting the seeded area from disturbances until the new grass has established itself.
Reseeding grass is a common practice in park maintenance to maintain a vibrant and healthy green space for visitors to enjoy.
During the closure, the Demuth Dog Park will remain open from daybreak until dusk, seven days a week. The Dog Park at Demuth is located at 4200 E. Mesquite Ave.
