“More of the same vulgarities,” says Vincent Santaniello who sends in this photo from yesterday of a dog owner with his unleashed pet on the Puopolo Park ballfields.
Residents have suggested additional signs be posted. Janet Gilardi finds this graphic “no poop” lawn sign that might get the point across. (Ed: Is anyone else worried the “double spike” might be used as a weapon in a doggie confrontation?)
Dogs in parks has become such as hot issue in the neighborhood that the NEWRA Parks and Open Spaces Committee is hosting officials from the Public Works Department and Animal Control on Tuesday, July 10, 7:00 pm at the Nazzaro Community Center, 30 N. Bennet Street. to address the problem.
It is unlikely many dog owners will be present at the NEWRA parks meeting because at 6:30 pm, also on July 10th, the North End Dog Meetup group will be having a Dog Playdate at Christopher Columbus Park.
While the dogs are playing at Christopher Columbus Park and the NEWRA parks people are talking about dogs in parks at the Nazzaro Center, you won’t find the Friends of Christopher Columbus Park at either because that group is also having their monthly meeting at 6:30pm on July 10th at the Mariner’s House.
