COMMITTEE UPDATES It was another awesome summer with great attendance at Lynch Park and Dane Street Beach. After many hot, dry days, our Summer Camp and Playground Program seasons have ended and it will soon be getting quiet here at Lynch Park. The fall is also a beautiful time of the year to enjoy the park so we hope the great weather continues and we get to see many of you here again and again. Through the generosity of the Community Preservation Committee and CPA funding, several projects will enhance many of our parks for many years to come. New tennis courts at Kimball-Haskell Park in the Cove are in progress, and new ADA accessible walkways at Dane Street Beach and Lynch Park were completed as of June. Funding has been approved for new playgrounds at Pete’s Park, Oak Heights Park and Vittori Park. Thank you to the citizens of Beverly and the CPC for your support. Some projects are also being funded with very generous grants from the David S. Lynch Trustees and private donations along with support from Mayor Cahill and the City Council. It was another nearly perfect year for the 52nd Annual Beverly Homecoming with just a little rain and few events postponed. All of the events drew great crowds including the many concerts, Lip Sync, Lobster Fest, Senior Day in the Park and the Fireworks, which were spectacular again this year and capped off another great week of over 80 events. Our staff members always work so hard to make our department successful each year. We have to thank our office staff, park staff, camp staff, lifeguards and rangers, who all contributed to a great summer. It is a pleasure to work with all of you. This summer seemed to go by very quickly but we look forward to more great times in 2018. We are very proud to be sponsoring the 17th Annual Momball Tournament this fall. The 2017 tournament is scheduled for the weekend from September 15th to September 17th. Mothers from across the city will compete and raise money for the Beverly Public Schools and other charities this year. In the seventeen years of this tournament, over $100,000 has been raised just for the Beverly Public Schools. In addition, many other local charities have benefited. It’s a great opportunity to raise money and have fun. The Beverly Parks & Recreation Commission continues to review the safety and accessibility at all parks and facilities throughout the city to enhance recreation opportunities for all Beverly citizens. We are planning several more projects for this year. Stay tuned for more details. It truly is our pleasure to work with you to make Beverly such a great place to live. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns. We always welcome your feedback.

BEVERLY DOG ORDINANCE These rules regarding use of Beverly parks to walk dogs were approved by the City Council in May 2007: - All dogs must be on a leash at all times while in public parks - Owners must pick up after dogs to keep the parks clean - All parks are closed to the public at 10:00PM - Dogs are prohibited from all municipal cemeteries, per ordinance Article XXII, Section 22-31

LYNCH PARK

PET WASTE REMINDERS

Memorial Day to Labor Day - Dogs are not allowed at Lynch Park after 7:45AM - On-leash dogs are only allowed in the park from 6:00AM to 7:45AM Labor Day to Memorial Day - On-leash dogs are allowed in the park from 6:00AM to 10:00PM

Pollutants from improperly disposed pet waste may be washed into storm sewers or melting snow. Storm sewers do not go to the SESD treatment plant. Instead most storm sewers drain into streams, lakes or along the coast carrying many pollutants along with storm water.

LINDSAY PARK, INDEPENDENCE PARK, BEVERLY COMMON, DIX PARK, COLGATE PARK & COONEY FIELD

When pet waste is disposed of improperly, your health may be at risk, too. Pets, children who play outside, and adults who garden are most at risk for infections from some of the bacteria and parasites found in pet waste. Flies may also spread diseases from animal's waste.

Year Round - On-leash dogs are allowed in the parks from 6:00AM-10:00PM

Beverly’s dog population is estimated at 4000 and using that statistic as a baseline, it would suggest a “solid waste” of about 1600 pounds every day.

PLEASE NOTE: Independence Park – Dogs are not allowed on the beach from 8:00AM to 7:30PM Cooney Field – Dogs are only allowed beyond outfield fence of baseball field

Pet waste may not be the largest or most toxic pollutant in urban waterways, but it is one of the many little sources of pollutants that add up to a big problem for water quality. Fortunately, there are simple things we can do to keep water clean.

ALL OTHER BEVERLY PARKS Memorial Day to Labor Day - Dogs are not allowed in any public park from 8:00AM to 7:30PM - Dogs are only allowed in the parks from 6:00AM to 8:00AM and from 7:30PM to 10:00PM Labor Day to Memorial Day - On-leash dogs are allowed in the park from 6:00AM to 10:00PM PLEASE NOTE: On-leash dogs are allowed to use all Beverly parks during the above hours but are not allowed on any ball fields or in any playground areas, sand boxes or garden areas at any time.

36

Cleaning up after your pet can be as simple as taking a plastic bag or pooper-scooper along on your next walk. What should you do with the waste you pick up? No solution is perfect, but here are the choices: Flush it down your toilet goes or private septic ants before the

the toilet– The water from to the SESD treatment plant system that removes pollutwater reaches a water body.

Bury it in the yard– Dig a hole or trench that is about 5 inches deep, away from vegetable gardens, and away from water bodies – lakes, streams, wells, oceans, or ditches with water. Throw it in the trash– This may be easy, but it is not the best solution. After collection, the waste is taken to an incinerator that can cause pollution problems. Another option is to install an underground pet waste digester that works like a small septic tank.

This program offers Beverly children ages 2 through 7 an opportunity to speak directly with Santa Claus! Santa would love to call your child and send a special holiday greeting. This is the perfect opportunity to recognize a positive behavior or send a special message. It has become a great tradition. Feel secure knowing that Santa’s helpers in our office shred all forms after calls have been made. Please return the completed form below no later than Friday, December 8th. Calls will be made December 19 & 20, 5:00-7:30PM. Due to the large number of calls, Santa cannot say exactly when, but young children will be called first. If you know that you are unavailable on some of these dates, please include that information. Please fill out a separate form for each child.
