Pet owners still unsatisfied after grass cut at dog park

DYKER HEIGHTS -

Some Dyker Heights pet owners say they're still unsatisfied with the Parks Department's work at their local dog park.

As News 12 reported last week, residents said they were fed up with poor conditions at the Dyker Beach Dog Run.

Following the report, the Parks Department dispatched someone Tuesday to mow down the grass from knee-high levels. Despite that, dog owners say more needs to be done, including filling in holes that may be dangerous to dogs and restocking waste bags.

The Parks Department tells News 12 that maintaining the dog run is a partnership that requires the community's participation. It expects dog owners to leave the park as they found it and that it's the owners' responsibility to clean up after their dogs and fill in holes.
