50k invested for a new park for kids to play but not safety from dogs

The area has just had installed a nice new park area for young and older children to play. But have left out vital protection from dogs and mess.

As a local dog owner and parent of a small child, I can see potential hazards by not having a fence around to perimeter of the younger kids play area.

Not everyone one like dogs or may have had a previous experience and I can see when my freindly dog approaches how nervous the parent can be.

Also we cannot trust all dogs and owners so I am calling for as many signatures to put to the council for a solution before it becomes an incident and whilst keeping children and parents more relaxed

Dogs on children's playgrounds represent a major health and injury hazard

This park is an old established, well used dog walking area.

The problem

Dogs on children's playgrounds represent a major health and injury hazard:

  • over 350,000 tons of excrement is deposited each year
  • over 100 people, mainly children, have eye diseases caught by swallowing the Toxocara egg each year. This is caused by the parasitic roundworm in dog faeces
  • There is evidence that dogs also carry e.coli and hepatitis in their faeces.
  • 1600 children are taken to hospital casualty departments with dog bites
