Sharing our public gardens with our pets

Sharing our public gardens with our pets

Dog parks are not located in residential areas and cannot be reached by everyone, in particular non-drivers. As a pet owner, I propose that the government gives us the right to use a small percentage of the public gardens in each locality. Most towns already have a decent number of public gardens, so why not make 1 or 2 of them open to pets as well? Allowing our pets to roam freely would make a huge difference in contrast to having to walk on a tight leash on narrow pavements and busy roads.


I am all for it. I pay taxes and want to use these gardens to take my dog for a decent outing. After all some of these places are not always full of children especially in the early morning and during school hours.
