Wagtown Dog Trail Installation

On this work day, we will be painting paw prints on the Walnut/Linden Wagtown Dog Trail, installing decorated pet waste collection dispensers, and finishing mulch on the playground.

Watch a quick video and learn more about the trail at

Hooray! The first Wagtown Dog Trail is about to become a reality! Join us on Saturday, June 22 from 9AM-12:00PM to install the first trail right here in Dayton, Ohio.

The one-mile loop will guide walkers along a scenic tour of the architecture and charm of Walnut Hills and Linden Heights. At each end of the trail is a beautiful City of Dayton open green space: Highland Park and Cleveland Park. The route will be improved with six new pet waste stations using recycled materials and stocked with used grocery bags. Directional paw prints will guide your way along this tree-lined route.

All of the improvements and have really created energy in the community. Highland Park is getting more regular use now, than it has in decades. All we need now is YOU.

Painting this trail will help the security, safety, sociability, and health of both the Walnut Hills and Linden Heights neighborhoods.

The Montgomery County Neighborhood Pride Trailer has been reserved for this event, so gloves, safety vests, grabbers, hand tools, and more will be available.

After the work is completed, you'll be treated to free pizza compliments of Pizza Factory. YUM
