Meetings scheduled on off-leash hours

dparkThe Baltimore Department of Recreation and Parks is holding neighborhood meetings to get more input on creating off leash areas for dogs at some city parks.

Tonight, city officials will hold a second forum on creating off-leash hours and a fenced-in, off-leash area in Patterson Park. The meeting starts at 6 p.m. at the Wolfe Street Academy on the corner of Gough and Wolfe Street in Upper Fells Point.

Later this month, city Recreation and Parks staff will appear at a meeting of the Riverside Action Group to hear neighborhood opinions on where to locate an off-leash area in Riverside Park in south Baltimore, and which hours to specify as off-leash.

That meeting is scheduled for Oct. 26 at 7 p.m. at Salem Lutheran Church, 1530 Battery Avenue.

However great this progress may be, we might consider the way other cities maintain and manage dog park areas. example: In Salem MA, all dog park participants must purchase a yearly pass to use the parks. The passes are limited to a maximum number each year to prevent too much overcrowding. Locks are opened by a plastic card much like hotel keys. These funds pay for the maintenace of the park. If an owner is cited more than once for breaking any rules, they can lose their key priviledge for a year. This would eliminate most issues the City has about funding and use. I would be happy to pay as well as contribute donations. Anything for a chance to let my dogs run.
