    You moniker is SO appropriate.

    Sounds like you've never been there before. So good luck with your lame threat to never go there again.

    Dogs were allowed to be OFF LEASH anywhere in the larger designated part of the park before. But you would know that IF you had ever been there.

    NOW dogs will have MORE restrictions. So in an ironic reversal... since it will actually be more safe for a "Too many out of control animals" fear monger like you to go now... alas, you threaten to never go again?

    Your post just made me laugh.

    And if you stepped in something at this park, you would be one of the first I've heard from. People are VERY good about watching their dogs and picking up after them at this park. Better than in my neighborhood.

    Counter intelligence, I doubt if you have ever been there or if you would ever go there, even if nothing else were ever allowed in that park except yourself.

    Corn dog, do you know the area?

    This park is not a pristine wilderness area, and it hasn't been for a long, long time. the rail road was brought through there, it is basically a field with a creak that runs through it boardered by scrub oak. The BMX bikers have torn up a huge area to make their track and jumps, and the tube at the top is used by large amounts of peoples (people that bring in a huge amount of garbage. And in fact it is usually the dog people that clean up the mess from the tube people). But everyone seems to get along fine, and all groups use the park for their enjoyment. But It is hardly a pristine wilderness, or any other kind of wilderness.

    I'm wondering how the city will enforce a 50 foot buffer from the creek. Are they planning to build a fence the length of the park?

    "City officials say the 50-foot buffer between park users and the creek should allow vegetation to filter possible contaminates before run-off reaches the creek."

    They're dreaming.

    Are offleash dogs and people NOT part of "Nature"???

    I think they are.
