Please grant the same off-leash privileges in Battery Park as exist in other NYC parks.

Off-leash privileges in Battery Park will greatly enhance the quality of life for local residents, by providing a much needed recreation area for their dogs. Currently this is the only large green space in our neighborhood and it has no off-leash privileges.

As dog owners in Lower Manhattan, we would like to have the same rights in our park as there are in other NYC parks. For example, dogs in Central Park and Prospect Park are allowed off-leash before 9am and after 9pm. We are asking for equal treatment and the same rights. These off-leash hours have been a long-standing (over 10 years) accommodation traditionally extended to the responsible dog-owning members of the community.
