The Keizer Rapids Dog Park is closed, and will stay that way for more than a month.

The closure is for maintenance and renovation purposes. Re-opening will be around the middle of March, weather and conditions depending.

The remainder of the park is open to on-leash dogs only.

City crews will be fertilizing and then resting heavily used areas.

Much of the large dog park has become quite muddy, an email from Witham said, and the city has gotten complaints of large dogs using the small dogs area.
