A beautiful example of why I stay as far away from dog parks as possible. If all goes well, it's due to sheer luck. Who needs the headaches?
Ditto what DinoBlue said. Good for you.Originally Posted By: DinoBlueWell done
Yes, it's not an officially designated dog park, and yes we're all liable for being fined due to leash laws (I think). It's fenced in private property owned by one of the local universities in the area, which is why I say that the area has been "commandeered" by the community. Given how well known and popular the place is, and how easy it would be to ticket people, I think it's not being enforced. I personally won't bitch if I get fined or reprimanded, though.Originally Posted By: MaxGunnarIs this place officialy designated a "Dog Park"? if not then the local leash laws should of been obeyed. I don't have prob with dogs off lead I have a prob with dogs at large unsupervised. Do I supervise my kids at the park? kinda sorta, but my kids don't have the potential to put somebody in the ER or rip apart somebody's foo foo dog.Originally Posted By: ceardach...area that the community has commandeered as a dog park...
Yes it is. I'll bring my dog (leashed) to the playground but never my kids to a dog park. Never mind that my dog DOES NOT like that dust bowl dog park in FoxPoint.Originally Posted By: ceardach Lastly, if there are almost 10 strange dogs around, you shouldn't bring more kids than sets of eyes to watch them. Thats just foolish parenting.
Oh cool, you're from RI, too. If you're familiar with the place by FoxPoint in Providence, then you probably know the place I'm talking about. It's the area behind the Brown University stadium next to their parking lot.Originally Posted By: SunCzarinaI'll bring my dog (leashed) to the playground but never my kids to a dog park.

For anyone who doesn't live around here, there's lots of unofficial community appropriated dog parks. My personal favorite happens to be in a park where supposedly no dogs are allowed - enforcement is non unless someone complains.
