“I fear some good dogs could get put down because children are entering dog parks unsupervised.”

“Dear PoPville,

I saw this sign at the LeDroit Park dog park. Almost every evening, unsupervised children come to the dog park to play with the dogs. Generally speaking, the kids are curious and friendly and positive experiences are had. However, I’ve always been worried that a kid might inadvertently get hurt. I was not present with this incident occurred, but the fact that this parent is now looking for the dog owner leads me to believe they were not present when this bite happened, otherwise I’m sure that information would have been exchanged. Some dogs simply don’t like kids, or when dogs are running around someone could get knocked down and hurt. Does the city have rules on this? I fear some good dogs could get put down because children are entering dog parks unsupervised.”
