Don’t fix what’s not broken
I am against changing part of Bakerview Park into a dog park.
Do you have any idea how many people, some with dogs, use this park daily? Most people are responsible and clean up after their dogs. There are no complaints.
The park now has sports fields, a playground, a paved path and a green space with lots of trees and flowers. People take their lawn chairs and blankets to sit and read, have picnics or just relax; teenagers come and sit under the trees and talk; children love to play in the ditch or jump over it.
When baseball starts in the spring, the diamonds and the green space is very busy; siblings playing while parents and friends watch the games. People come and play bocce, fly kites or just sit and relax.
This park is working well as it is; with everyone including dog owners. Why spoil it?
