This town really needs a dog park. I know this town needs many things…but a dog park should be at the top of the list…for many reasons.
*less dog poop on the sidewalks
*better socialised dogs=less agression
*a dog park is an asset
*people will be less likely to break leash rules and poop scoop rules
*can actually generate a little bit of money for the town
*can be a fun social gathering for dog owners
My idea, and I sent this to Shiela Gordon-Payne on council…
is to use Doug Kerr ball diamond as a dog park. The costs to get it ready would be very minimal. Reinforcing of chain link in areas and put either a key code gate or a locking key gate…oh and poop bags of course.
Charge people a nomimal yearly fee to use the park anywhere from 2- - 50 dollars per year…or per 6 month period and this would pay for grass cutting and there might even be some left over at the end of the day.
The key card gate would be better as the code can be changed every 6 months…or per year when dues are due. You would only need a letter for people to sign absolving the town of any lawsuits…one contact person to bring complaints too…I could do that. And voila!..instant dog park.
what do you guys think?
