Join us Friday, March 3rd from 4 pm to 6 pm for a very special cause!
We are hosting a dedication and fundraiser event for Floyd’s Memorial. Michele Morrow had an idea of building a memorial to honor Floyd, an adorable seven-pound local chihuahua, who was tortured and killed by his owner in a tragic senseless act of violence in June 2016. Since then, Michele has devoted her time working with our staff to dedicate an area at the Park that will cultivate community compassion for our animals and strive to raise awareness to prevent animal abuse.
Floyd’s Memorial is being constructed next to the restrooms above the soccer fields. The Memorial will feature a garden, where a remarkable statue of Floyd, sculpted by Bud Bottoms, will be placed; a drinking fountain that serves dogs and people; and, an artistic ceramic tile wall created by local artist, Sheryl Wheeler from donations by individuals who purchase tiles embellished with their dog’s paw prints.
You can contribute to the Memorial by purchasing a 6×6 ceramic tile, which will display your dog’s paw and name. The cost of a tile is $250, and only one dog paw can be printed per tile. Your tile will be placed at Floyd’s Memorial behind the water fountain, creating a beautiful tile wall, displaying your commitment to this special cause. Your tile purchase is tax deductible.
A Day of Action ribbon cutting ceremony will take place Friday, March 3rd, from 4 pm to 6 pm. During this ceremony, we will collect your dog paw print to create the tile. It will be one big party for the dogs! You can still get your tile even if you cannot attend the event, just come by the Park office and we will help you.
The “Day of Action” will also welcome animal welfare activists and organizations. Gretchen Lieff from “Davey’s Voice” and Diana Basehart of The Basehart Foundation will offer remarks and lead a silent march to honor abused animals.
This exciting event will be a big day for dogs! Join us for a very special afternoon!
Please help us send a message of community support and commitment to kindness for all animals. Our hope is to grow this vision long into the future.
Elings Terrain Festival
Get your shoes on for a great day of running, food, live music, beverages, panoramic ocean and mountain views, and one of Santa Barbara’s premier trail running venues. The Elings Terrain Festival has one simple goal…bring parents, students, and the running community together to raise money for student-athletes (cross country) at San Marcos, Dos Pueblos, and Santa Barbara high schools. And the school with the most paid race entries wins the Elings Terrain Cup! Whether you’re fast, slow, or somewhere in between, there’s a trail run for every member of the family:
- 5K (open to everyone); 3K kids (Ages 8-13, parents can register to run with their child); and 3K dog (your pooch will love running with you).
Add to your post-race endorphin buzz with live music, food, exhibits, and a beer garden (21 and older…obviously)
