What about dog use?
Although our hearts go out to the dog owners who are going to be permanently displaced by the Markey Park renovations, we must stress that
Clouet Gardens is not a dog park
We have worked very hard to create this space, and it exists first and foremost for the enjoyment of people.  While we do not want to exclude people from enjoying the space with their pets, we need everyone to responsibly monitor this use.  We are having problems with dog fights, dog poop, and dogs destroying the landscaping through digging and urination.  We are concerned that these problems may become much worse with the renovation of Markey Park.  Because of these issues, we must ask that dogs be kept on leash, especially in the presence of children and other animals.  If you witness the space being abused, please let the offenders know it is unacceptable and bring the incident to our attention at  
We are sorry to have to set such rules, but we hope you understand our predicament.
