PARKS: Misuse of Nunziato Field Off-Leash Recreation Area and Park

Question/Comment:  A resident reports misuse of of the dog park at Summer St & Putnam St.  People are there right now (11:38 pm Sunday), despite the fact the the park sign restricts access between 10pm and 8am. The resident points out that this is a nuisance to the local families.  S/he would also like the City to note that people frequently use the adjacent park as a dog park.  The resident would like to request that a police officer puts a stop to misuse of the dog park and Nunziato field in general.

City Update 6/9/10: Both the City's Animal Control Officer and Officer Alan Monaco, the Ward 3 Neighborhood Police Officer (NPO) have been made aware of this issue.  The Ward 3 NPO has committed to making more frequent stops at Nunziato field during his shifts to ensure it is not being misused and enforce park rules.

  1. I pass this park every morning between 7:15 and 7:30 and not a morning has passed that it's got owners and dogs in there. I know people walk their dogs before going to work but is there an alternative solution?
