Doko Meadows Park is a busy place these days! 
The fields are used weekly for the Farmers Market,as well as reserved for  charitable fundraisers and athletic events. 

   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).
