Brookland dog lovers are lucky to have Langdon Dog Park so close to our neighborhood. But while it is relatively new and one of the largest dog parks in DC, users complain that they often find the park to be empty. This sort of negates one of the benefits of bringing your pooch to the park, the social interaction that well-adjusted dogs need. My opinion is that the only way to resolve this is for folks to get involved. Now is the perfect time as the Langdon Dog Park Association is having their first membership meeting of 2014. The meeting will be from 7:30-9:00 pm on Monday, January 27th at Langdon Park Community Center (2901 20th Street NE). The agenda for the meeting includes planning for the year, installation of new board officers, changes to the bylaws including extending membership terms to two years, and planning for a tree-planting with Casey Trees later in 2014.
