This is a petition to grant dog owners the opportunity to socialize with their dogs off-leash in the enclosed Painter's Playground located in Rego Park, Queens, NY. As cities grow more crowded and leash regulations become stricter, dedicated dog parks are seen as a vital solution for dog owners seeking a safe and enjoyable place to bond with their pets.
Our aim is to create a secure, fenced-off dog park where well-behaved dogs can exercise in a clean and safe environment, without posing risks to people, property, or wildlife. We also seek to develop a beautifully maintained space open to all dog lovers and friends who are committed to upholding the park's rules and restrictions. Dog parks offer a wonderful opportunity for owners to connect with like-minded individuals and foster a sense of community.
Allowing dogs to exercise off-leash is essential for their physical and mental well-being. By establishing a dedicated dog park, we can provide our community's dog owners with a valuable space for play and exercise, potentially reducing the need to rehome or surrender dogs to shelters due to behavior issues. Responsible dog owners will readily comply with the park's regulations, ensuring that public parks remain clean and accessible to everyone.
We recognize that funding is a key consideration in these cases. The good news is that our local Painter's Playground already has an enclosed area where dogs can run off-leash. Our goal is to transform this space into an official dog run. Please add your signature to support this cause. We will forward this petition to local councilors and the community board in the hope that the voices of dog owners will be heard, and we can establish a safe and secure area for quality time with our canine companions.
