Coral Springs Park Going to the Dogs
By Dylan Rush, Coral Springs Charter School ACE Intern
After several days of renovation, Dr. Paul’s Dog Park, located at Sportsplex, was reopened to the public on Saturday, January 12, 2019! The reopening and renovations were hosted by the City of Coral Springs Charter School (CSCS) DECA, Key Club, National Honor Society and Student Government Association. This is one of the many community service projects coordinated during the 2018-2019 school year to commemorate 20 years!
The event featured music, dancing, blow up slides and games for dogs! With food trucks and plenty of renovated dog water fountains, two-legged and four-legged attendees enjoyed the refreshments.
On-hand for the official ribbon cutting ceremony was CSCS Principal Gary Springer, who was joined by City Commissioner Joshua Simmons, ACE Coordinator Donna Hoo and the wife of Dr. Paul, Jill, who stated, “Dr.Paul was a visionary, he always wanted to help the community.” Similarly, each spoke about how much the project and its outcome meant to them personally, as well as the community who will enjoy it for years to come.
While students and faculty worked hard on the project, the members of Coral Springs Charter School wanted to recognize and thank the dedicated staff from the City’s Parks and Recreation Department, who helped to make the renovation and event possible.
