City Parks: Gone To The Dogs?

There are over 700 dog parks in the nation -- public open spaces where unleashed canines are allowed -- and the trend is growing.

This article gives a brief history of the trend and offers advice for dog park success.

"...the issue of free-running canines in public open spaces has become a permanent fixture in local park planning debates...The key to success, it seems, is all in a community's approach. The efforts of several prominent dog-park communities provide useful examples of what works and what doesn't."
