Friends of Hance Dog Park has “adopted” the park and are committed to keeping Hance Dog Park a safe, clean, and enjoyable place for dogs and their owners.

Volunteer

Friends of Hance Dog Park has “adopted” Hance Dog Park from the City of Phoenix Parks and Recreation Department under the “Adopt-a-Park” program. The City of Phoenix Parks and Recreation Department is responsible for overall maintenance of the dog park (including landscape and turf maintenance and watering and maintenance of fences, sidewalks, and other fixtures), but Friends has committed to tidying and helping to keep the park clean. Volunteers will meet on the first Saturday of every month at 8 AM to pick up pet waste and other debris in the dog parks and the common areas immediately around them. Come join us in helping us achieve our mission of keeping Hance Dog Park a safe, clean, and beautiful place for dogs and their owners. See our calendar for additional details. Future initiatives will be posted here as they are put into effect.

If you can’t attend a Saturday clean-up event, please help keep the park clean by picking up pet waste and other debris when you visit the park. If we all pitch in we can keep the park a clean, safe place and enjoyable place for dogs and their owners.
