For two-plus years, I have taken my dog to Sunnyside Park, enjoying the space for my dog to run.
Not wanting to jeopardize the opportunity of taking my dog to Sunnyside, I have respected the on-leash restriction, plus ensured that I picked up after my dog and others as well. I would do the same if my dog was off-leash.
There is an area in the northeast corner that would be perfect for an off-leash area. It is never used by the public, and there are lots of dogs in the area that would benefit from this. All the area would need is a fence, keeping the cost to a minimum.
We were never consulted about the closure to dogs at Sunnyside; the creation of this off-leash area would make it easier to abide by the rule not to have dogs in the park.
