Letters: Ponds park wrong place for dog park

Sooke resident feels off-leash dog park will impact her life

Shame on Sooke for allowing the photo that was used as the proposed off-leash dog park!

If the camera would have panned out about another 20 feet or so to the right you would have seen all of the backyards that are on Pond Place all the way up Acreman Place.

I am so against putting a dog park here for a number of reasons. First,  it is right out my front door, not back but my front door. Also there is no parking here except for on the road and that would be an inconvenience to the residents here.  As a home business owner I had to make sure that there was adequate parking before I was approved for a business license. And finally, a lot of the residents that live here have dogs and I can’t imagine the noise from all the barking that would go on when they get a “sniff” of all the dogs running around off-leash just outside there backyards.

This is in response to the public open house on off-leash dog park ad that was run on Wednesday, May 29 2013.
