Congratulations to all who attended the Solar Lighting Dedication at the Gloucester Dog Park Tuesday night! The dedication was a big success and a culmination of a three year protect to install four new solar lights at the Gloucester Dog Park! Now, many more dogs & owners can use the park even when it gets dark outside earlier in the winter months! The lights are on a photo sensor so they turn on shortly after dusk and are set to turn off at 9:00 PM. This greatly increases the hours of use and enjoyment for dogs and owners at the Gloucester Dog Park and is beneficial for the environment too!

A special thank you to Tom & Kristin Zarella for their very generous donation of the solar lights to the Gloucester Dog Park. Thank you to the many individual donors who helped to contribute funds to install the solar lights at the dog park including a very generous gift from the Schmidt Family Foundation. And thank you to Nikki Bach of Bach Builders who took the lead, organized and supervised the entire installation of the solar lighting job. And thank you to all the Gloucester Dog Park Board members for helping to make this project happen. This is a true benefit to the City of Gloucester and one that will be enjoyed by the citizens and dog owners of Cape Ann for years to come!

Join Us!

City Councilor Paul Lundberg, Cornerstone Donor Linzee Coolidge, Solar Lighting Donors Tom & Kristin Zarella, Mayor Sefatia Romeo Theken, and Solar One Representative Ilze Greene
