Doko Meadows Park is a busy place these days! 
The fields have been used for music festivals, such as the recent Bluegrass festival, charitable fundraisers and many athletic events to name a few. 

   The Town of Blythewood encourages the public to use the
Park and enjoy being outside with family and friends.

  While the park is open to the public, keep in mind that in order to use it for larger events
with many people in attendance
or to have an event exclusively for your group,
whether it is a sports group
needing a practice area or a private group holding some event, you must reserve and rent the field area(s).

 Come by Town Hall or call 754-0501 for information and fees

    Feel free to pass this newsletter on to family and friends to
see the many events going on in Blythewood this summer.

To all our Blythewood Dads, have a great day and thanks for all you do!
