Not Actually A Park

Posted on Fri, Oct 9, 2009 at 2:56 PM

So when they were fencing in part of the vacant land at the triangle of Cogswell and Rainie, I dared to hope that it might actually be a useful substitute for taking my pup to the Commons in the summer and having everyone yell at me for having a dog who needs to run.

And then they finished the park and slapped signs all over it FOR SERVICE DOGS ONLY. I am not calling into question the need for a fenced-in park in the downtown area. I just can't see why other responsible dogparents can't use it when it's vacant? I have never seen anyone in there, and there it sits, completely fenced-in, safe dog-running territory, and I don't want to look like an asshole for taking my (very obviously NOT a service animal) dog in there to use it.
