Mott Haven, Melrose, and Port Morris is a growing population of dogs and their owners. We the community have a dog run in St. Mary Park but it is in poor condition. The gate is run down and to low. Large dogs have jump over the fence to attack other dogs. There are gaps in the fence were small dog can get out and get attack by other dogs. The community fear using the dog run because dogs have gotten sick and died from the dog run. There is no water for the dogs on hot days. We have to walk to the other side of the park to get water to our dogs. There are no signs for basic rules of the dog park and some people have abandon dog there. Because we do not have a bag dispenser some people in the community will tie bags to the fence for those dog owners that do not compared to pickup after their dogs. But some time the bag will come off and make the park look like a dump. Please help us make St. Mary Dog Park safer for our dogs.
