No "Dogs Off Leash" In Los Gatos Parks
While we may love dogs, we DO NOT WANT "Off Leash Dog Hours" at Bachman Park, or any of the Los Gatos neighborhood parks for the following reasons: -Off-leash dogs in an unfenced area present a safety issue. Dog owners cannot control their off-leash dogs 100% of the time. Off-leash dog owners more often leave behind dog feces than do owners with leashed dogs. -Off-leash dog hours will impact the peace and tranquility of our neighborhood. THERE ARE NO OTHER OFF-LEASH, UNFENCED DOG PARKS IN SANTA CLARA COUNTY. Bachman Park will become a magnet for off-leash dogs/owners, resulting in more traffic and parking problems in the neighborhood, not just from Los Gatos residents, but from all over the South Bay area. -The Parks Dept. has stated that they cannot police off-leash dog hours...it will be up to the dog owners. This situation is already out of control with off-leash dogs coming to Bachman Park at all hours. What will happen when it is legal? Town Council of Los Gatos, we urge you to vote down this proposal and keep Bachman Park dog-safe for families, children, and on-leash dogs, and free of increased traffic and parking problems in the neighborhood.
