Help Save the Fort Greene Dog Run!
Attention Fort Greene neighbors and fellow dog parents,
Our beloved Clermont dog run (between Willoughby and Dekalb) has once again been shut down! As the only completely fenced in dog-friendly area anywhere in the neighborhood, this run has become a vital resource for local residents, some of whom have been taking their dogs here for many, many years.
This unofficial space has served us well. But following an uncertain few months during which the dog run was locked on numerous occasions – including this latest closure – we have decided that it is time to turn this area into an official NYC dog park!
We know that the NYC Parks Department is concerned about maintenance and the necessary labor that goes along with it. Therefore, our power lies in our collective commitment to take care of this resource. This petition demonstrates that there is overwhelming demand for this dog park and a real willingness from local residents to help maintain it once it is made official.
The more signatures we can secure, the more likely we are to succeed in winning back our slice of puppy paradise. So please share this petition widely! All Fort Greene dog parents as well as general community members are encouraged to sign. Thank you so much for your support, and more soon!
