BEVERLY RECREATION | Winter/Spring 2017

REGISTRATION FORMS ON PAGES 17-18-37


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.

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.

A MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR...

THE END OF A GREAT YEAR! As winter starts and the holidays are in full gear, Lynch Park is still a beautiful place to visit and think back on a great year. We had a warm summer with no rain day cancellations of our Park Program. We had large crowds at the park, especially on July 4th, when many people witnessed the Carriage House fire. Thanks to an amazing response from our staff, the Beverly Fire Department and other local fire departments, damage was limited and the building was still able to be used for events, including an incredible wedding in the Garden and reception in the Carriage House for the Doig family. It reminded me how lucky we are to have such an amazing park in Beverly. Lynch Park is truly the “Gem of the North Shore,” and just one of our beautiful waterfront parks. We had a busy 2016, with projects completed at Dane Street Beach and Obear Park and plans in-progress for Pete’s Park, Oak Heights, Vittori and Cove Park. We are also working with a group of citizens to plan improvements for Independence Park, preserving its beauty and significance in history. We are very lucky to have the continued generous support of the Beverly Community Preservation Committee to fund these projects and many more. This group works hard to help fund projects that make Beverly an amazing place to live. I also thank the David S. Lynch Trustees for continuing their financial support of improvements to our open spaces. Thanks to Mayor Cahill, the Department of Public Services and a large group of volunteer parents and players, Hurd Stadium was renovated. The 2016 BHS Football team had an amazing season in the new stadium with new Head Coach Andrew Morency, a former Bev Rec employee. Many thanks to our full-time staff, summer staff and CITs for their dedication and hard work to provide great programs for children and families in Beverly. We look forward to continuing to serve you and wish you all a Happy New Year. Thank you very much for your continued support during my 14 years as Beverly Recreation Director. I look forward to hearing from you and helping to make your leisure time healthy and enjoyable. Feel free to send us your ideas.
