Off-leash dog park too small

Upon visiting the new off-leash dog park in Penn Valley, many of us dog walkers discovered that a medium/large dog couldn’t get a good running start in that small space. We are appreciative of the gesture, but if your dog weighs more than 8 pounds, there’s nothing there for him or her. The space should at least be the size of one of the ballparks at Gateway.

Next time a project such as this is planned, please do more research into who and what it will be used for. I, along with others, will continue to walk my dog in Gateway Park, where there are interesting things to do and see.
