Dog Reminder

As the weather gets warmer we encourage all residents to take advantage of the nature trails. 

For the safety and well being of all residents, and in accordance with the Pet Policy and Blacksburg Town Ordinance, please remember that all dogs must be kept on a leash at all times. 

Please also remember to pick up after your pet so the trails stay nice for everyone.
