Doggie Bags for a Cleaner Lake


One of the most important services FOLQ provides is offering complimentary doggie bags to the hundreds of people who walk their dogs around the lake.

We want to ensure that all walkers have the capacity to pick up after their own pet. There are three dispensers, – near the Lowell and Main Streets., on the Lower Common, and on North Ave near Vets Field. They are attached to the side posts of informational kiosks.

The expense of thousands of doggie bags is covered by the annual dues of FOLQ members. The restocking of dispensers is managed by volunteers.   Because of this systematic effort, the lake and its surrounding parklands are cleaner.
