Meetup:

KEEP BULL CREEK OPEN AND OFF-LEASH - Online Petition
(please sign and spread the word)
http://www.gopetition.com/online/30022.html

  The Parks Dept. plans to close Bull Creek. They have plans to "re-purpose"
(meaning close) Norwood Estate Dogpark. They have plans to
isolate the
off-leash area at Auditorium Shores to a small area by the
railroad tracks.
They have stopped the volunteers at Red Bud from making
improvements and
ticketing cars there.
   Our leash-free areas are under threat of "improvements", which means
closing for maintenance or just closing. They are blaming dogs
at Bull
Creek, but ignoring the sewage spills and the drought.
   Please sign the petition to help our friends at Bull Creek, or the rest
of our favourite areas may be next. Emailing the Parks Board  (
Linda
Guerrero, Chair [address removed]  Sara Hatfield Marler
[address removed] ) to support leash-free areas may help
also.
