Park goes to dogs

To the Editor:

Lions Park is a beautiful place with swings, playground equipment and all the goodies for a great picnic.

My wife used to take our kids there and met a lot of other young families doing the same. Lately the park has been taken over by a couple of guys and their dogs.

Unleashed and running wild, the dogs have pretty much scared out the young mothers and their kids. One fellow even puts his dog on the top of the tables and, once in a while, grooms it there.

The village is aware of all this but may be trying to consider turning the park into a dog park. Sorry all you moms. You’ll have to find another place to take your kids until the village figures it out. There is a park to the south that maybe we could move a picnic table to and make it into a dog park.
