Keep Olympia Park off leash area where it is and let the park be finished
Over the past 4 years the community of Mt. Washington has pulled together to create an off leash area of Olympia Park. We have worked together with the city and the community to establish this park and sadly due to a group of residents completely against the park the decision has been made to move it from its current location. We want to keep the park where it is and finish it with landscaping, benches, waste disposal, etc., all part of the original intent. This off leash area has provided great relationships and a sense of community in Mt. Washington that has been missing for a long time. We are starting this petition to let Mayor Peduto know that despite the number of people against having a dog park, there is a larger amount of people in this neighborhood who want to keep it. We can make a difference by standing up for a transparent process to finishing it and will do whatever we can in our means to make it the best dog park in the City of Pittsburgh.
Keep Olympia Park off leash area where it is and let the park be finished. The current decision was made in a non-transparent process despite being promised it would done in such a manner. We were alerted that we weren't vocal enough, so now we will be. We want to keep the park where it is and let it be finished.
