My town has been nominated to win a PetSafe Dog Park! Margate is a very nice, quiet community that still embodies the "hometown feel" and a dog park would be a great place to be social with neighbors and allow our canine friends a place to stretch their legs and have fun!

Margate's 60th Anniversary Celebration
Join us on Saturday, May 30th as we celebrate the City's 60th anniversary. The celebration will begin at 5 p.m. at the Margate Sports Complex, 1695 Banks Road, with a walk down memory lane when longtime residents and City officials share their favorite memories and photos of the early days in the City. After the ceremony, party-goers will enjoy fun activities including a variety of lawn games, bounce houses, music and food. The free event will culminate with a movie in the park featuring "Back to the Future". Bring your lawn chairs and blankets for this popular movie starring Michael J.
