Summer 2017 News!

The 2017 Annual Meeting, held on July 20 under the park pavilion, was a success! We have seven people serving on the DCPA Board now, and there are plenty of projects in motion to make the park a recreational hub in Danby! 

The disc golf course is being improved and will soon have a full 18 holes, thanks to the DiscIthaca crew. 

The natural playground Phase 1 construction will begin as soon as the ground in dry enough to drive a large tractor over (help us out, Mother Nature!). Phase one will include a slide and climbing boulders.

Plans for an ice rink, natural bridges over soggy trails, and natural amphitheater built into the mound are underway, and will hopefully be implemented within the next year. 

There are lots of groups using the park for various fun and social activities, and it is wonderful to see folks embracing Dotson Park as Danby's community backyard! 

The DCPA will also be holding a sign designing contest, so that we can get a cool and welcoming new sign in the entryway. More information will be shared in an upcoming Danby Area News article.

Email if you would like to be involved in any of the projects listed above!
