 VILLAGE GREEN PARK PLAYGROUND
The City of Parkway Village now has a state-of-the-art playground at our Village Green Park.  Just before Thanksgiving 2014, the old surface and border were removed.  The replacement crumb rubber surface has been tested to be a safer material for those using the playground area.  In addition, the new border features an accessible ramp.

PET OWNERS' RESPONSIBILITIES
When you walk your pet(s) in the City, PLEASE pick up after them.  There have been numerous complaints about excrement in neighbors' front lawns.

Excessive excrement in Village Green Park makes it difficult for residents, families, children, and others to use the Park for its intended purposes.  The City has installed a DogiPot station at the south entrance to the Park.  The station is equipped with bags and a depository for dog poop.

Not only is your assistance in cleaning up after your pet appreciated, it's the law.
