Re: “Fetching and Kvetching: A Dog Park Annoys Some of Its Neighbors

Starr Farm Dog Park is an AWESOME volunteer managed park that runs amazingly well considering how many people and dogs go there. Unfortunately, a few VERY vocal and power hungry people are spreading erroneous rumors that the dog park is a wild free for all. Overall, it is a fun, loving, peaceful, and positive place that promotes a sense of community among dog owners. There will always be a couple issues as there are with all public places (way worse things go down in the "human" parks). Once in a while dogs will have a scuffle, but considering the large number of dogs and owners who go there it is amazing so little problems have occurred... Largely because people monitor their dogs and the park is large enough so that dogs have enough space to distance themselves from negative interactions. The gates remain locked from 8pm-8am; if anyone is in there at night and in the early morning they are in there illegally. If residents such as Lee Brown see people breaking the law or noise ordinance they should alert the police to solve the problem and NOT make the law abiding dog owners suffer. Much of the negative commentary is blown out of proportion.

Re: “Fetching and Kvetching: A Dog Park Annoys Some of Its Neighbors

Sounds like one solution to one of the neighbors concerns would be to increase parking.
Some of the people who park at the dog park do not use the park nor do they have dogs! I don't know where they actually go, but they typically are coming from or going to the bike path. So the dog park lot will become full during peak times, but not all cars belong to people using the park. The park closes at 8pm, but even after the gate is locked and the dogs and their owners have gone there are often a couple cars left in the park.
In a related issue, the neighboring "human" park frequently experiences not enough parking during the soccer games. Sounds like that park could also use extra parking.
