The San Bruno Pilot Program allowing dogs on leashes in City Park and Grundy Park started today. This program will last 6 months and if all goes well may become permanent. Anyone that visits either of these parks knows that dogs have been walking on leashes forever, but today marks a milestone, its now legal.
Several months ago several SanBrunoNow members attended a Parks and Recreation Committee Meeting. Reyna and Tim requested that the city consider changing the rules that restrict dogs from being in our city parks. The City Council voted a month ago to approve the pilot program. There were many residents who spoke in favor of this program. A couple people expressed their concerns. They were concerned about the safety of those sharing the parks with our dogs and about dog owners who don’t pick up after their 4 legged kids. The success of this program is dependant upon the dog owners adhering to the posted rules.
