To the editor:
How about a hint, Skip? Don’t plan a beach blanket picnic at a dog park.
“Uncontrolled” dogs are at that park to be off-leash and have some freedom. Maybe have your dinner at one of the 50 other lakefront parks in the city that don’t allow dogs.
As for the mess, the worst of it is the summer, presumably when many out-of-towners frequent the beach and care less about the cleanliness of the park than the regulars.
And yes, it’s disgusting when they don’t clean up after their dog.
Most park users are diligent and appreciate the space provided for the dogs.
As for the nudists, none of the residents miss the ones that chose to engage in physical acts of love while the neighbourhood kids ran through the park.
