You may have recently seen a happy dog chasing a ball or Frisbee in a field at Martin Luther King Park.  Although this is a great way to give a dog exercise close to home, Park Police have been ticketing dog owners who use the space in this way.

Some Kingfield neighbors feel that a separate and secure area reserved for off-leash running and playing—somewhere in Kingfield—would enhance the livability of our neighborhood.  And, perhaps frequent use by responsible dog owners would increase the safety of a currently underused space.

    I would love to see a dog park in Kingfield. It would be nice to walk to one instead of drive to one in which case I would use more also.

    Dog park in Kingfield is good idea, but certain rules must be followed:
    1) dogs should all be licensed with the city.
    2) dogs should be certified by someone knowledgeable in dog behavior that said animal is able to be with other dogs and not cause trouble such as biting or signs of aggression toward other dogs.
    3) if there is no one in charge, owners of dogs assembled should have the right to ask the owner to remove the offensive dog from the park and not return until re-certified.
    4) females in season should refrain from using park until their periods are over.

    These are common sense rules used by other parks in the city.
