Memories captured in brick

Students continue dog park project

Carmel Valley teenager David Wolosin picked up right where his brother left off.
In 2005, his older brother Taylor completed his Eagle Scout project at the Torrey Highlands Dog Park, setting up an information kiosk and selling commemorative bricks.

While 208 bricks were put into the ground at the dog park off Lansdale Drive, 15 remained to be placed and mom Donna Wolosin had a hard time finding someone to do the work.

That’s when David, a junior at Canyon Crest Academy, stepped up with seven of his school’s Associated Student Body classmates.

“I know a lot of people here at the dog park and I love dogs,” David Wolosin said. “It just seemed like it would be a good community service project.”

Students Claire Andrews, Charles Cellier, John Davidson, Chrissy Gaglione, Isabelle Giap and Jason Ma helped Wolosin last Saturday.

It took four hours to install the remaining bricks around a concrete semi-circle in the center of the park. The newest bricks hold messages for lost, beloved pets, like “Remember Squeaky and Aphrodite” and “Jake, we will always love you.”

Like his older brother, Wolosin is an Eagle Scout. Last year for his Eagle Scout project he painted a map of the United States, installed a clock and renovated the garden at Ocean Air School.

When asked what he plans to spruce up next in the community, Wolosin said he’s got nothing planned yet, but said he’ll be on the lookout.

Bricks can still be purchased at the dog park for $75, with the money going toward keeping the park clean and safe. For more information, visit
