They’ve never seen problems with dogs in Comox park

Dear editor,
For over 30 years my wife and I have had the pleasure of living in beautiful downtown Comox backing on the very pretty Port Augusta Park.

Dear editor,For over 30 years my wife and I have had the pleasure of living in beautiful downtown Comox backing on the very pretty Port Augusta Park.We have seen weddings, family picnics, school room classes on an outdoor learning experience and dogs with their owners — all without conflict. There has been no major problem that we are aware of. The park is ideal for all this activity including the dogs.After 30 years of observation we have found the dog owners (many of whom we have met) to be responsible people who pick up after their dogs and put their dogs on leash when it is appropriate to do so.When the opportunity is there they take the dogs off the lease and get some exercise chasing balls. frisbees, etc. The dogs then avail themselves to a drink of water from the creek that runs through the length of the park.In other words, with a little common sense dogs and people can both enjoy this jewel of a park. That is what we thought was happening in this idyllic setting.We see no reason to change what has been going on all these years. If everyone simply continues to use common sense there is, in our view, no need to deny the dogs or people the use of this park.Sidney F. Popham,Comox
