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.

Cemetery Adventures for Children (3rd Grade and younger)

Bring your kids to this fun Cemetery Tour on Saturday, September, 20 at 10:00 a.m.

Do you have a child who is interested in the cemetery but would rather see bugs than burial records? Perhaps they'd like to take a peek into a mausoleum, learn about the animals that make their home here or hear a short tale about the exciting days of old. If so, this tour is for them. Specifically designed for children third grade and younger, this tour is more of an informal stroll to introduce kids to the many wonders the cemetery has to offer.

The cemetery is located at 1000 Broadway, Sacramento. Free parking is available in the lot at 10th & Broadway, across the street from the 10th Street entrance. Tours are free; however, donations are appreciated and benefit cemetery preservation. For more information, call 916-448-0811 or 916-264-7839.
