Cleaning Victory!

On July 26, 2017, Save the Harbor/Save the Bay was joined by our partners at Boston Properties, otherwise known as 200 Clarendon on a clean up of Victory Park. Both teams were very excited to come out and make a difference on such a perfectly sunny day!

Victory Park has been unofficially designated as a dog park. In fact, in the few short hours of our clean up, we saw at least 60 dogs coming in huge packs with a few dog walkers. With all these dogs coming in, it was clear what could be contributing to poor water quality poop! It is important to emphasize that the walkers did do their best to clean up after the pups but with so many dogs running around, it is almost impossible to clean up everything. Since this park is not considered an official dog park, no doggie bags are provided at the park.
Volunteers pulled nearly 2 tons of debris and dog waste out of Victory Park
Save the Harbor is proud to partner with the team from Boston Properties' 200 Clarendon on this ongoing effort to reduce runoff into the harbor and improve water quality as well as the condition of this urban oasis.
