Ellsworth Urban Dog Park at 621 Ellsworth Dr. is scheduled to close today for annual maintenance, according to the Montgomery Parks website.

Crews will be replacing the mulch and wood chips in the park, as well as swale work to manage storm water run-off, and digging out and leveling retaining walls, a spokesperson said.

The work is expected to take about two weeks, and then the park will reopen for its usual hours of sunrise to sunset.
