Dog Problems at City Parks

The Board of Park Commissioners would like to remind city park users that dogs must be kept on a leash while in a city park and that they are required pick up after their dog.  The Parks Department has received numerous complaints from residents regarding these issues, which seems to be a growing concern.  Residents calling to complain are concerned with the safety, health and aesthetic implications of the problem. 

James McGrath, park and open space program manager, hopes that people will voluntarily comply with these ordinances “We realize people like to visit the parks with their dogs, and all we ask is that these visitors respect the rights of other park users by complying with existing rules”.  For more information, please contact 499-9344.
