  1. Cont… and Mosswood /small dog side by Broadway Kaiser. Years ago Ohlone Dogpark on Hearst/Milvia I enjoyed it and made do many friends with people and dogs both. The fact is that dogparks lessen crime and put eyes out for anything that looks weird or off kilter – Dogpark users cam heads up ie, phone in any observations to 911 if necessary, and nip small problems in the bud. The cooperation has to come dog park users — to clean up and tp follow reasonable self imposed ruled about poop pickup (critical issue!) Using gates to separate by size (so everyone gets a safe time to play!) And noise hours of use ie, be cool with noise or you have crabby neighbors! This can all work. This can be done and the time is come to get this community asset to happen at Snow Park. Please pass on the word to others to write an email showing support and encouragement so the dogs can be walked and cared for. You will also meet the most wonderful people when out walking dogs!
