Since it was first developed a decade ago--long before it had a name--Henry Hudson Riverfront Park, on the waterfront in Hudson, NY, has been off limits to dogs. As the park has expanded and evolved, many people have gotten into the habit of walking with their dogs in the park, on leashes as required by Hudson law. This being the case, it occurred to the Legal Committee of the Common Council that this quiet enjoyment of the park by residents and their dogs should not be illegal.
Walking a well behaved dog is a wonderful way to meet and greet your neighbors. And of course we would clean up. There should be stiff fines for dogs off leash (except Luci and Desi), for the dog's protection.
It is ridiculous to prohibit the taxpaying citizens of Hudson to exercise the freedom of walking their dogs in an open space provided they are on leashes and owners clean up after them. What's next? Banning dogs from the City entirely? It's absurd.
As long as dogs are on a leash, they should be allowed to accompany their owners wherever they go
